As the world continues its fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, New England Patriots linebacker made sure to voice his gratitude and appreciation to all those working on the frontlines.
Winovich wrote a message of support over his social media accounts Wednesday while encouraging fans to stay home.
“An easier time when we could actually see our enemies. To all my friends and supporters, please stay home if possible. If you can’t, stay safe. To all those on the frontlines, many thanks for your bravery and willingness to fight back. We shall prevail.”
Teammates Julian Edelman, Jarret Stidham, Mohamed Sanu, and Ja’Whaun Bentley all liked the post.
Despite the ongoing pandemic, the NFL league calendar continues forward, albeit with a different protocol.
On March 26th, Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the 2020 NFL Draft would go on as scheduled from April 23-25 and would be televised, but the annual selection process would no longer include public events in Las Vegas.
Yesterday, NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash revealed the league is still expecting the 2020 season to start on schedule.
“Our planning — our expectation — is fully directed at playing a full season starting on schedule and having a full regular season and full set of playoffs” Pash said on a conference call.
In the meantime, players like Winovich continue to use their platform for the greater good with such words of encouragement.
