NFL eyeing onsite offseason workouts; NFLPA prefers virtual setup

  NFL eyeing onsite offseason workouts; NFLPA prefers virtual setup The NFL indicated meetings will likely remain virtual for the foreseeable future, but this year’s offseason workouts are not expected to be fully virtual like they were in 2020. However, the union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year.As of now, teams can schedule onsite OTAs to begin April 19. This is, however, contingent on no offseason plan being agreed to between the NFL and NFLPA. The union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year, with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reporting little progress has been made between the sides on this front.

Singh, 20, is signing from Toronto FC II on a four-day short-term agreement in accordance with MLS rules stating that clubs may sign players from their USL affiliates on short-term deals for CONCACAF Champions League, Canadian Championship, Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, and exhibition matches.

Singh, after signing with Toronto FC II in March of 2019, spent the remainder of the 2019 season on loan with Danish Superliga club Brøndby IF where he went on to make 24 appearances, scoring two goals.

  Storylines: CD Marathon vs. Portland Timbers Portland’s 2021 journey kicks off with their first leg in the Round of 16 of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League.Their return to the field will be in the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League Round of 16, where they will face Honduran club CD Marathon. The first leg of the two-legged series will kick off this Tuesday (3:00 p.m., broadcast on FS1) at Estadio Yankel Rosenthal in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

The 6’2” defender is a graduate of the Toronto FC academy, spending time with the U-18/U-19 squad after originally joining in 2017, making 10 appearances and scoring once.

Born in Brampton, Ontario, Singh has represented the Trinidad & Tobago U-20 team, making 3 appearances at the CONCACAF U-20 Championships in 2018.

Singh has spent time training with the Toronto FC first team last season, as well as in the run-up to this match, with those within the club very high on the potential of the young centre-back.

For what it’s worth, the signing does raise question marks into the health of Toronto FC heading into this game. We already know the team will be without Ayo Akinola and Tsubasa Endoh most likely, and are reportedly going to missing the reigning MLS MVP Alejandro Pozuelo as well.

Since Singh is a centreback, the odds are one of Toronto FC’s mainstays at the back are also battling something, however, that has yet to be confirmed.

Kickoff is set for 8 pm ET Wednesday evening, and you can watch the game on OneSoccer.
