Numerous NFL players have made the decision to opt out of the 2020 season, but some of the biggest names may be yet to come, according to one report.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler said Tuesday that “big names” are “strongly considering” opting out ahead of Thursday’s deadline, although he declined to name which names he was speaking about.
More than 50 NFL players have opted out, and several big names are strongly considering joining the group. The race to the Thursday deadline will be fascinating.
