According to sources, the NFL has confirmed that when the season returns the player’s helmets will include names of victims of systemic racism and police violence.

Each week, teams will have a choice to honor one specific name or several names, all 32 NFL teams will feature the decals. The players however will decide which name or initials they want on their helmet.

The NFL has been making efforts to address racism. Last month NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league should have listened earlier to players’ concerns about racism. Shortly after his statement, the NFL pledged $250 million over the next 10 years to help fight systematic racism.

95 NFL players have tested positive for coronavirus since the league began administering tests over the past 4 months, but that number is expected to grow by the hundreds with increased testing.

With COVID-19 concerns there have been talks about a helmet covering the player’s entire face. Jersey swaps were also canceled for this upcoming season to promote social distancing. 

The 2020-21 season is scheduled to start September 10, with team training camps set for July 28.
