Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and tight end Zach Ertz joined scores of the league’s most recognizable stars in calling out the league on Twitter.
NFL players are publicly pleading with the league to address several health and safety concerns on the eve of training camp.
The league informed teams on Saturday that training camps will open on time even though discussions with the players’ union regarding testing for the coronavirus and other health and safety protocols are ongoing.
Rookies for Houston and Kansas City are set to report Monday and rookies for other teams are due on Tuesday. Players for all teams, including the Eagles, are scheduled to report by July 28.
Birds’ rookies report tomorrow.
Ertz and Birds’ CB Darius Slay were just a few of Wentz’s teammates who also took part in the #WeWantToPlay campaign.

We all want to play this season, but we need to stay safe in order to actually have a season! It’s time for the @NFL to step up and do their part so that us players can be safe at work and go play the game we love! #WeWantToPlay
