    For every player who opts out there will be 50 waiting to take their place....and this is just counting the people who have actually played football in college and/or professionally

    That agreement also comes with a drop in salary cap for 2021 too. It is going to be in the ball park of 175 million, compared to the 198 that we have this year. I just read an article in profootballtalk that there are already 8 teams over that cap number and will have to cut or restructure just to get under. That group includes the Eagles, Saints, Falcons, Chiefs, Steelers, Bears, Raiders and Vikings. Next year's free agent class is going to be flooded with top talent and will make it a buyer's market.

    Right but there is an opt out clause that allows players to sit out and not lose their job in 2021.

    So far one player has already opted out however I think he is doing it for a good cause.

    Others will follow. So I do think the season will occur now. But now the question becomes will we have full strength teams with their super stars?

    But before anyone judges him he’s actually a doctor and said he’s going to risk it for his patients.
    "I cannot allow myself to potentially transmit the virus in our communities simply to play the sport that I love. If I am to take risks, I will do it caring for patients."

    Wow, what a great and heroic individual. THIS GUY gets it....

    Well he had a medical doctorate..... But he actually worked as an orderly in Montreal at a long term care facility..

    Either way... good for him...

    We’re about to see our first test. The Nationals had their best player play yesterday and test positive today. And the team is still playing the season opener tonight. It will be interesting.

    Tom Brady has reported to Bucs facility. I just check now and the NFLPA is still reviewing the Bucs plan.

    If I were in charge I'd strongly have considered starting the season with division rivals playing back to back games. This means neither team comes in contact with any other team for two weeks and the first 6 games all teams are isolated by their division teams. It would also be useful for determining division champs for the playoffs is the season is cut short.
    Yes players were 59 , unless they change it again. It blows my mind that over 4000 that were tested between NBA, MLS, NHL and MLB there was only 2 positives while the NFL had 90+.

    The divisional games front loaded seems like a good idea. I'm surprised they didnt think about it like that.

    Link to NFL source for 59 players. The 95 came from all football personnel, not just players.

    https://www.nfl.com/news/nflpa-appro...s-for-covid-19

    Also in the link the NFLPA approved the Broncos Infectious disease emergency response (IDER) plan.

    The below link was given for player as a resource.

    https://nflpa.com/covid-19-updates-information

    It says Denver has the 9th least concentration in NFL markets...look at the link for the details.

    Agreed! Would love to see the country see the pro leagues have success and follow them by wearing masks, social distancing, washing their hands regularly, and quarantine & get tested if you feel sick.
