The league held a meeting with coaches, general managers, presidents and ownership Friday.  Most of the player concerns were addressed and the higher-ups are all on board.

Among the agreements by NFL teams that are pending player approval, sources told ESPN:

The 80-man roster deadline is Aug. 16, before padded practice, but teams can have 90-man rosters if they go with a split-squad setup. Some teams have plans to split squads and use stadium and regular practice facilities.

The salary cap remains the same for 2020 at $198.2 million per team, and there is a cap floor of $175 million in 2021 with the possibility of it being higher based on revenue streams.

There will be a fund established to pay back any benefits eliminated as a result of COVID-19 up to 2023, as well as paying back any lost guaranteed money to players.

NFL players considered high risk to COVID-19 can earn $350,000 and an accrued NFL season if they choose to opt out of the 2020 season. Players without risk can earn $150,000 for opting out.

Players who make a team's cut get a $300,000 stipend if the season is canceled and no games are played. If a season is canceled before the cut-down date, players who were on a team in 2019 get $250,000.

Michigan State's entire football team will quarantine or self-isolate for 14 days after a second staff member and one athlete tested positive for COVID-19, the school announced Friday. 

"As part of the athletic department's return to campus policy, student-athletes quarantine when coming into close contact with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19," the school said in a prepared statement. "The university has designated areas available to house individuals in quarantine as needed based upon the living arrangements for student-athletes." 

The school will conduct another round of surveillance testing before deciding whether to resume workouts. 

No members of Michigan State's athletic department staff had tested positive during the school's first few rounds of testing. 

In some positive news Friday, Clemson confirmed that none of its players tested positive recently following an outbreak that resulted in 53 positives.  Most were asymptomatic.
