For the first time in history, all major sports in the United States have come to a screeching halt. The NBA led the charge last week announcing the suspension of the 2019-2020 season. Shortly afterward, the MLS, the MLB, and NHL all followed suite. The NFL has closed most of their facilities but has reported that free agency will continue.

Monday marked the start of the legal-tampering period and many big changes were made starting with former Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins who signed a three-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals. Former Minnesota Vikings wide-receiver Stefon Diggs was traded to the Buffalo Bills and the Denver Broncos added former Detroit Lion’s offensive lineman Graham Glasgow.

While free agency doesn’t begin until Wednesday many teams and players have made it clear they will likely be moving on. Last week Denver Broncos Pro-Bowl cornerback Chris Harris Jr. stated that the door had closed on returning to Denver in response to Denver’s agreement to sign Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye. On Tuesday, six-time Super Bowl winner, Tom Brady indicated that he would not be returning to New England and currently two teams remain front-runners for where he might land, L.A. with the Chargers or Tampa Bay with the Buccaneers.

Cam Newton and his agent have been given the go ahead by the Carolina Panthers to seek a trade in free agency, which could change the landscape for where Brady might land. There isn’t much of a need for quarterbacks in the league this season, which could make things difficult for Newton and Brady.

Although free agency in the NFL will continue despite COVID-19, there’s no sign as to how it will affect the start of the 2020 season.

Since there is no indication as to when things will normalize, it is important for sports fans to take this time and follow city, state and federal guidelines set forth to help curb the COVID-19 outbreak.

COVID-19 has affected Americans one way or another and even if you don’t know anyone who’s been infected with the dangerous respiratory virus, you probably have heard about an athlete, a movie star, or a political figure who’s become infected. The truth is our everyday lives have been changed drastically and will continue to change as our nation tries to cope with this deadly virus.

So stay safe, practice good hygiene, and heed to local and federal government guidelines set forth to help combat this epidemic.
