NFLPA President JC Tretter says NFL almost canceled 3 rescheduled games due to COVID-19 outbreak

BEREA, Ohio – president of NFLPA JC Tretter said the NFL was close to canceling three games last weekend due to multiple outbreaks of COVID-19 between teams.

Instead, the league moved Saturday’s match between Las Vegas Raiders and Brown in Cleveland into Monday, and rescheduled two games for Sunday – Washington at Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks Football Team in Los Angeles Rams – until Tuesday.

Tretter, also Cleveland’s starting center, was asked Wednesday about the criticism he’s received from Raid players, particularly by the linebacker. KJ Wright and hidden corners Casey Hayward Jr., to advance the rescheduled game. On Friday, Hayward tweeted, “I’m sure the NFLPA president who plays for the Browns doesn’t have any influence on these negotiations.”

“I think what people don’t understand is that I fought for the same thing for the Browns players as I do for the Raiders players, which is getting paid. … I don’t think everyone is aware of it. “And I don’t think everyone is aware that, if canceled, they won’t get paid. Neither team will be paid.”

The Browns played Monday’s game against Las Vegas with 22 players on the COVID-19/substitute list, including 10 starters. The Raiders won the game 16-14.

Tretter said that counting a canceled match is tournament dependent. But he said he and the NFLPA are focused on making sure the players get paid for the week.

“I don’t worry about rankings, I don’t worry about achievements, I don’t worry about those things as president,” Tretter said. “I’m worried about making sure our people get paid, and that’s my concern.” NFLPA President JC Tretter says NFL almost canceled 3 rescheduled games due to COVID-19 outbreak
