Teams are getting set to report to training camps this upcoming month, but there’s still a lot of uncertainty about the working environment this upcoming season, and players are demanding answers.

In a coordinated social media posting blitz, several of the league’s top players called out the NFL for their lack of a coherent plan to keep them healthy while they return to play amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Players including Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, JJ Watt, and many others used the #WeWantToPlay hashtag to state they want to play this season but also want safety protocols in place.
