NFL Rumors: Players Won’t Be Able To Swap Jerseys After Games In 2020

The jersey swap at the end of an NFL game has become a fun tradition.

But they won’t be a thing come 2020.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that teams “will be forbidden from postgame interactions within six feet of each other and jersey exchanges between players will be prohibited during the 2020 season, sources say.”

While we understand adhering to the guidelines and social distancing, players still will need to tackle one another for 60 minutes. It’s what prompted players to shared their resistance to the rule.

Pelissero later tweeted the change had yet to be agreed upon.

Regardless of what comes of this, it’s probably safe to say the NFL will look a tad different once the season begins in September.
