As the NFL tries to figure out exactly what happens now after Monday’s legal setback, the league is telling its coaches not to go back to business as usual.
A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that teams are telling coaches not to talk to its players while the NFL is in labor purgatory. That means if players are able to get in team facilities on Monday, like Steelers safety Ryan Clark and some others plan to, the coaches will have to avoid them.
Of course, it sounds like teams have no intention of allowing players into their buildings. The league is essentially trying to press pause until they have had the opportunity to seek a stay and appeal of the lifting of the lockout. And, oh, the draft starts in three days.
Just another strange night in this increasingly strange offseason.
