In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the NFL is weighing shutting down their facilities to keep contamination away from players and employees.
The Coronavirus has very rapidly changed the fabric of sports around the world, and now especially in this country. The NFL is now starting to be affected. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL is considering shutting down their facilities.
No one in the Colts organization has commented on this publicly as of this article being published. As of right now, their facilities will still be open for the team to train. They will also still have personnel traveling to visit pro days and evaluate prospects.
How this affects free agency has yet to be seen. But Schefter also has reported that the NFL has no plans to shift the start of the new league year.
The Colts would be wise, as would every team, to monitor this situation closely. With the NBA postponing their season and the NCAA canceling multiple conference tournaments, things are moving at an extremely fast pace. Things could change rapidly.
Right now, everything should move on as planned. Free agency will still start next week and the draft will still be held in late April. No one knows what this pandemic will force the league to do, but all we can do right now is wait and see.
We will let you know of any updates that the Colts send out or of any other worth news about this virus via our Twitter feed.
