Players for the Los Angeles Rams became the latest to announce they will not participate in 2021 offseason workouts.

In a statement released through the NFL Players Association on Friday, the Rams explained they were opting not to show up for voluntary offseason training activities and minicamps.  

"While we all still feel optimism that the pandemic can be beaten, we are still in the fight and believe it is unnecessary at this time for players to be volunteering to put themselves at risk for in-person workouts, with our players currently around the country working to safely improve their game on their own," the statement read in part.
