Jersey swaps won’t be allowed during the 2020 NFL season.

According to Darren Rovell and Tom Pelissero, players swapping jerseys and taking pics after games won’t happen because of coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

When will it end? When will the carnage brought onto all of us by coronavirus officially end? When will the chaos be over?

We can’t even have jersey swaps now? This has to be a joke, right? Players are allowed to hit each other on the field, but now can’t swap jerseys.

Somebody explain to me how that makes sense at all. If it’s safe enough to tackle someone, then how the hell isn’t it safe enough to swap jerseys?

It makes no sense at all.

Also, best of luck to the NFL when it comes to trying to enforce this new rule. I don’t even know how they ever could enforce something like this.

Are they going to suspend players who get too close to one another? It’s literally an unenforceable rule.

Shoutout to the NFL for trying to shut down jersey swaps! I’m glad to see the league is focused on the big issues during the coronavirus pandemic.
