The WFT canceled a free-agent workout due to COVID-19 concerns, according to The Athletic’s Ben Standig.
The workout, which involved several free agents, was called off, reportedly, “out of an abundance of caution,” according to NFL Network’s Mark Garafolo.
According to Standig, several free agents were in Washington this weekend for a workout after Washington’s Week 4 game, but the players were called by the team Monday and told the team decided to cancel the workout. “They were told this was a team choice rather than a league mandate,” Standig said citing an unnamed source.
Garafolo noted Washington “does not have any positive COVID tests right now” and this move was the team “being cautious.”
One reason to be cautious is head coach Ron Rivera is currently battling cancer and considered high risk.
