Report: At least one ‘elite’ NFL player could sit out 2020

Roger Goodell

Several NBA and MLB players have decided to opt out of the 2020 season for a variety of different reasons, and we could see the same with the NFL in the coming weeks. According to one report, at least one well-known NFL player is considering sitting out.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports was told there are a group of NFL players with asthma who are giving thought to not playing this season due to concerns over the coronavirus. One of those players is considered an “elite level guy.”

The NFL is reportedly planning to give players the option of sitting out the 2020 season, though it’s unclear how contract situations will be handled for any players who decide not to play.

Some prominent players from other leagues have decided they are not going to play this year, but NFL players have a bit longer to determine what they want to do. The NBA and MLB seasons will begin later this month.
