Could Cincinnati Bengals players end up opting out of the 2020 season?
The idea isn’t so outlandish right now. The NBA’s restart in Orlando, Florida, has featured several massive names say “no thanks” to the proceedings in the bubble, such as Avery Bradley and Victor Oladipo.
Over in the NFL, the preseason has already been cut by two games and there is a chance the entire preseason gets cut, which would have interesting schedule ramifications on the Bengals. The NFL could also ask fans attending games to sign COVID-19 liability waivers.
Discussions between the NFL and NFLPA remain ongoing as to the procedures around training camps and the season itself.
One big topic now? Whether players can opt-out of the entire season.
