NFL Players Opting Out Including Six Patriots, Former Oregon Duck Patrick Chung Included

According to reports Tuesday morning, former Oregon Ducks star and current Patriots safety Patrick Chung has voluntarily opted-out of the 2020 season.

The opt out used by Chung was part of an agreement reached between the league and the NFLPA, which allows players to opt out of the 2020 season amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Depending on if they are considered high or low-risk, NFL players who choose to voluntarily opt out of the season will receive either a $350,000 or $150,000 salary advance.

32-year-old Chung reportedly pulled out of the season in 2020 because of his newborn child (his second), amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
