Great. Did anyone tell them rookies report tomorrow?

The fact is the NFL is barreling into this cockeyed season with the grace and elegance of a train wreck. Alarmed by the lack of information and progress, some of the biggest names in the game convened a Sunday tweetstorm, calling out the owners.

Using the hashtag #WeWantToPlay, stars like Drew Brees, Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes demanded some answers. J.J. Watt’s tweet listed things the players “don’t know.” That included questions like, what will be done when a player tests positive? And is there a formal “opt-out” clause?
