On Thursday, the Las Vegas Raiders players voted to take the advice of the NFL Players Association and boycott the in-person portion of the offseason workout program. Several other teams had previously decided to do the same.

Several teams have already decided to boycott in-person OTAs and I expect more teams to do so. However, I bet if some teams decide to attend in-person workouts, the boycott will eventually end. This is about union unity and I think, in the end, all teams will either boycott or all will come in.
