NFL opt-out date may be coming sooner than expected

NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Things are changing rapidly and often with the NFL.

According to Adam Schefter, the NFL is going to move the opt-out date for players to as soon as Tuesday at r Wednesday.

It was at first thought to be a week after the NFLPA and NFL ratified their new CBA, but sounds now like it could be immediate.

The Arizona Cardinals have had no players opt-out for the season, and now they may have to make a decision in a much more expedited fashion.

It’s a bit surprising that the NFL is pushing this, but there’s been a bit of outbreak of Covid-19 and we’ve seen players begin to opt-out as those positive cases show up.

So, now it may be a day or two until we know what the initial Cardinals roster looks like.

Let’s see what the next two days hold for not only the Cardinals, but the NFL as a whole.
