CLEVELAND (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will step out of his cave to shout this year’s rookie lesson at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
The league has announced plans for this year’s three-day event in Cleveland, which will include some prospects after being in person when last year’s conscription took place in Las Vegas, almost because of the COVID-19 epidemic.
Some of Cleveland’s iconic downtown locations, including Rock Hall, FirstEnergy Stadium and the Great Lakes Science Center, will be open for three days from April 29 to May 1. Most of the events are outside.
Goodell will be ready to meet the newest players of the league, but from a small distance. Based on the success of last year ‘s virtual event, when the commissioner read the names of the players from the basement of his house, other contestants from a distant country will take part.
The league said the three-day event would be open to the public and that the protocols for the attempt to host the Super Bowl in Tampa would be in effect.
The league will once again work with state and local public health officials to ensure the safety of fans and participants. Fans are required to wear face masks և maintain physical distance.
The main phase will be built along Lake Erie to serve as a focal point for project activities, including anonymous music activities.
“We are delighted to be heading to Cleveland for the NFL, which has become one of the most anticipated events in the sport,” said NFL Executive Peter O’Reilly.
The NFL will also use this year’s project to promote the COVID-19 vaccine.
This year’s project coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Cleveland Browns.
