NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero released a picture of a memo sent by the NFLPA to agents discussing their displeasure with the NFL Scouting Combine.

The NFLPA memo said, “We have spoken to several agents who reinforce our long standing opposition to the NFL Scouting Combine and agree and support the decisions by those to not attend.”

“Our union has always encouraged players to take control of their careers from the very beginning,” the NFLPA stated in the memo. “We appreciate that agents are looking at ways to support that goal.”

The NFL released a prior memo just a day ago informing players that they’ll be in a COVID-19 “bubble” next month in Indianapolis, with limited exceptions.

In the memo, the NFLPA warned that “Players who violate this policy at any time will be disqualified from further participation and sent home.”
