A little more than a year ago, the NFL announced that it would be launching a program that would allow players, teams, and coaches to interact on a weekly basis with one another.
Now, the program is finally getting underway, and it’s not just the players that will be able to interact.
Here’s what we know about the program, and what the future holds.
The players’ rooms will be all on the same floor As mentioned, the players’ locker rooms will all be on the floor, as will the team’s.
The goal is to allow players to “feel like they are in a locker room, but in the same room,” said Greg Zuerlein, a former NFL offensive coordinator and current ESPN analyst.

Players will be asked to take part in all types of drills Players will also be asked in the future to participate in various types of workouts.
Zuerleses comments echo what the players themselves have said, and the goal is that they’ll be able “to feel like they’re part of a group of people.”
Training rooms will have their privacy restrictions In an effort to ensure that there will never be any type of “inappropriate behavior,” the facilities will be closed to the public.
Zerlin said that it is possible that some players may have the opportunity to participate at practice facilities, but that he believes that players will only be allowed to do so when there are other players present.
“I don’t know if that’s possible,” Zuerle said.
“Maybe it’s one day, maybe it’s three days, but I don’t think it will be one day. I don
