The NFL and the sport of flag football are gearing up for the possibility of NFL players, both current and former, participating in the Olympics.

The U.S. already boasts a highly successful men's national flag football team, but it also houses some of the world's top tackle football players
While the logistics and challenges are considerable, such as the overlap between the Olympics and NFL training camps,
the door is open for NFL players to make their mark in flag football on the global stage.
Key factors that would need to be addressed include support and participation from the NFL, its teams, and the players' union
