AFC East 2020 season opt-out list

As part of the NFL’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, players were allowed to opt out of the 2020 season. They receive a $150,000 advance on their salary and the rest of the years of their contract are pushed back by one season. If a player had a high-risk condition, they received a $350,000 stipend and credit for the season.

Full details for the agreement between the league and the players can be found here. Players still have a few days to opt out and we will continue to update this article.
