According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, the NFL would be willing to put teams in hotels for the remainder of the season in something of a team-by-team bubble. A problem, however, could be the NFLPA, which objected to such a proposal previously.

Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol

  Report: NFL investigating Raiders for breaking COVID-19 protocol The NFL is investigating the Raiders for potentially violating coronavirus protocols by allowing a team employee without proper credentials to enter their locker room. The alleged violation took place following Monday night’s big win over the New Orleans Saints. Only 40 employees from each organization are allowed inside the locker room. There are security points to prevent unauthorized people from entering locker rooms, and the NFL believes the Raiders staffer eluded those checkpoints.

Players could be willing to go along with the proposal. With multiple Week 4 games affected by positive COVID-19 tests, the possibility of major changes might be more realistic. Players could be willing to make some sacrifices to finish the season and collect a full year’s worth of paychecks.

It’s worth noting that one team essentially mimicked this idea by forming its own bubble during training camp. It’s not clear how serious this proposal will be considered, but the NFL is clearly willing to talk about it.
