NFL security cameras are mandatory for all NFL players.
Now the league is testing the technology and introducing a new rule to enforce it.
The league announced Wednesday that all NFL teams will have cameras installed throughout the league’s stadium parking lots.
The cameras are designed to identify players and other team members, and are required to record when they are using their own devices or on the field.
The goal is to give players an extra measure of privacy.
The NFLPA said the cameras are not mandatory for players who are not on the sideline, but would be included in the stadium parking lot.
The players and team have been asked to sign a document that says they have the right to video footage and to use it as they see fit.
That includes using it in any form and on any subject they choose.
The rule also calls for teams to wear their cameras in public, if required.
NFLPA president Eric Winston said in a statement that “the cameras will help ensure a safe and fun football experience for all fans in the league.”
It was not immediately clear how many cameras the league will install, but the NFLPA says it will use cameras on its teams to make sure they are visible.
“The NFL will not hesitate to enforce its policies when necessary and will do so in a way that respects players’ rights,” Winston said.
