Russell Wilson, whose wife Ciara is pregnant, among star players who demand NFL safety plan

NFL players want to have a 2020 season, but only if the NFL gets its act together. A number of prominent players — including Drew Brees, J.J. Watt, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson and Richard Sherman — criticized the league Sunday for its lack of safety protocols as training camps begin to open.

Wilson, 31, cited his wife Ciara’s pregnancy as a reason he’s concerned the league hasn’t issued a plan yet.

The 31-year-old Watt provided the most in-depth view of the situation, laying out the various issues the players need to be resolved before rookies report July 21.
