  1. Not so sure. Some may, others will not. I think the NFL is leaving it up to local jurisdictions on who has fans in attendance and how many. It will be up to the teams to comply with their local guidelines and restrictions.
  2. Texans traded for and gave Tunsil a 3 year extension to his rookie contract. I see them doing something similar to Watson after this year. Thus Watson would play 5th year option in 2021 at $17.5 million, then get 3 years added at 31+ mil per season, with much (if not all) guaranteed, taking him through 2024. This circumvents using franchise tags that would keep the UFA on the roster, but maybe sow derision as well. Texans were improving as a group, notably toward the end of last year, and then added Tunsil. Max Scharping at left guard and Tytus Howard at right tackle are no longer rookies. That group won't chase Watson away. Never say never, but this more a dream then reality. Coaches that give up on franchise QB's get kicked to the curb. Even BoB knows this.
  3. Curious, when has a team willingly let a QB go to a division rival without exhausting all measures and stops? Even GB wouldn't let Favre hang in the NFC, let alone go to the Vikings (though he eventually got there anyway). I do not see it coming to fruition.
  4. The NFL and players union agreed to a modification to the CBA, and it's all spelled out here- https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/texans/article/NFLPA-outlines-COVID-19-amendments-to-CBA-15435633.php Voluntary opt outs get a $150,000 stipend counted as a salary advance and taken off next years contract. High risk opt outs (doctors record) get a $350,000 stipend, and it doesn't count as a salary advance.
  5. I think its 8 teams. Jaguars got left off somehow, but I have since added their players now.

  7. There is still no signing of the modified CBA. Thus the 7 day window to opt out is still rolling over.
  8. Correct! It doesn't. But it will next year... if he is non high risk and the contract was tolled.
  9. Depends if non high risk or high risk opt out. Non high risk - A voluntary opt-out, and the player must be under contract or subject to a tender. The player's contract will toll and all provisions of that contract for the tolled year will be applicable the following season; however, he will not receive an accrued season. The player will be eligible for a stipend of $150,000 to be treated as a salary advance against his tolled contract. High risk - "A higher-risk opt-out player will receive an accrued season toward free agency and all benefits and minimum salary credit for a credited season and is also eligible for a stipend of $350,000, which will not constitute a salary advance."
  10. Here's an update for player opt out- "Players will have the ability to opt-out later in the season, as well, in the event that a family member becomes sick. Those that take the league up on their offer must provide the club with written notice of his election to opt out. Once given, the notice will be irrevocable for the remainder of the 2020 season" The original list has been updated with the latest player additions.
  11. Evidently, there are now 3 dates. The day an agreement was reached, and players can begin to opt out. Next is when the agreement is signed (which is reportedly not yet happened), then the next is 7 days past that signing date where players can no longer opt out.
  12. From the report I saw it stated (which was a modified version of the CDC list)- "To be designated a higher-risk opt-out, a player must have a diagnosis reflected in their medical records of at least one of the following factors, which are based upon a modified list of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) risk factors list: cancer; chronic kidney disease; COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease); immunocompromised state from solid organ transplant; serious heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies; sickle cell disease; type 2 diabetes mellitus; asthma; cerebrovascular disease; cystic fibrosis; hypertension or high blood pressure; immunocompromised state from blood or bone marrow transplant, immune deficiencies, HIV, use of corticosteroids, or use of other immune weakening medicines; neurologic conditions, such as dementia; liver disease; or pulmonary fibrosis." If his doctor has noted as such in his written medical records, then I believe, yes he qualifies. OTOH, note what is not in the NFL's modified (from the CDC) list. Those with BMI >30. So it seems you are not high risk (in NFL terms) just because you play DL or OL.
  13. Thank you for following up. Wow, would have thought that would have been done not long after conditions were agreed upon (last Friday). I wonder what the delay is? Good for those players still mulling it over...
  14. Agreed. The players wives will have major input. This goes beyond player safety, it affects their complete family and even friends as well. All opt outs must be submitted in writing to their club within 7 days of the signed amended CBA agreement (which was 7/24/2020). So players can't even wait until August, they have this week to make their choice. Yes, by the end of 7/31/2020, as mentioned above. To answer the rest, see here for details-
