Jets will skip minicamp amid NFL return speculation


The Jets will be wrapping up their virtual offseason program next week and will not conduct an in-person minicamp this month, according to sources.

The NFL has yet to clear teams to hold minicamps, but there has been speculation that they might try to gather later this month to hold some practices. The Jets are going to finish up with their virtual sessions next week and then reconvene for training camp, which is scheduled to begin at the end of July.

This offseason has been unlike any other for NFL teams as COVID-19 restrictions have kept teams out of their training centers. Typically, teams have offseason practices beginning in April and continuing through June, ending with a three-day minicamp. This year, teams have had to conduct meetings through video conferences.

The Jets began their program on April 27 and will wrap it up next week. The Jets train in Florham Park, N.J. and their training center has yet to reopen. The NFL said it is possible head coaches will be allowed to return to team facilities this week and Gov. Phil Murphy has given the Jets and Giants permission to begin reopening. The Jets said they would consult with the governor’s office and their medical staff to plan a phased reopening.

Even if some coaches and staff return to the facility soon, it seems like players will not be back until late July.
