The NFL is seeing a lot of player deciding to opt out of playing in 2020, which means that their contracts will toll to the 2021.
Those that opt out will have contracts advances of $150,000 for those without pre-existing conditions and $350,000 for those who have a pre-existing condition that makes them at higher risk (think James Conner who has already dealt with cancer as a college player).
The NFC West is going to be the most difficult divisions in the NFL this season, and that means that every player opting out could tip the balance of power within the division.
That is why it is not surprising to see a low amount of players thus far opting out.
Here are the names we know so far in the NFC West and this is something we can update as we get more names throughout.
Arizona Cardinals - None
Los Angeles Rams - None
San Francisco 49ers - None
Seattle Seahawks - Chance Warmack
So far, the Cardinals and the rest of the NFC West have one player, Chance Warmack who signed later on a one-year deal with the Seahawks.
We’ll see if any others choose to opt out before the August 3rd deadline.
