The NFL announced a slew of new restrictions for the 2020 season as teams continue off-season planning despite a resurgence in coronavirus cases nationwide.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the league will ban post-game interactions between opposing teams, which will put a hold on the tradition of players exchanging jerseys after a game. 

The NFL is taking other steps to cut back on players' non-essential contact with people outside the team. That includes a ban on media in locker rooms, a suspension of on-field fan seating and a requirement for teams to travel to stadiums by bus.

It was previously announced that some stadiums, including the Superdome, will also close off its seating nearest the field.
