The NFL must be ready for the return of former President Donald Trump

We reluctantly interrupt this typically joyful moment on the NFL calendar, as teams return to their buildings for training camps, to ask a difficult question that may have lingered in our collective minds, one that we have tried our best to keep it dormant so far.

What follows is not a political endorsement or an ideological pointing finger. We will not rehash the previous term or delve into questions of morality. There will be plenty of time and space for that later.

Instead, it’s all about preparation, fitness. This is a question for coaches, general managers, players’ agents and, overwhelmingly, team owners. What have we learned from 2016 to 20? Suppose everyone got a free pass and no Republican, Democrat, or Freak Power party member could have predicted what shape the world would take under a Trump presidency.
