Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Aug 7, 2020 11:43 am

The NFL had 66 players opt-out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The NFL set a deadline of August 6th by 4 PM ET to opt out and be eligible for a stipend of $150,000 to be treated as a salary advance against his tolled contract.
