The NFL is allowing players to “opt out” of the 2020 season if they don’t feel safe participating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A number of players have already taken the league up on that offer, but on Monday, a former Florida defensive lineman became the first player to do so under the “high risk” clause.

Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Washington Football Team DE Caleb Brantley will be paid a $350,000 stipend and have his contract roll over to next season:

That makes 7 players who have currently decided to opt out of the season, according to Alex Kozora on Twitter:

Brantley was a Round 6 pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2017. He signed with the Washington team in 2018 but missed almost all of the 2019 season with an injury.

Now, he’ll have a chance to come back at full speed in 2021.
