    He’s under contract with them next year now.

    Funchess, I believe, has had to deal with covid-19 hitting pretty close to home. Not exactly sure who had it but from what I have read online it seams like someone in his family contacted it. Not sure if they past away but I am sure this had to do with his decision.

    Additionally, below is a tweet I came across about why some people are making the decision to opt out. Take from it what you will.

    Funchess is garbage and probably at best a low end #2 WR. But I think I remember hearing that one of his grandparents nearly died from it, so it's not that surprising. He was also incredibly young coming into the league, so even though he was drafted in 2015 he just turned 26.

    No I agree I think he kinda blows which is why I'm surprised he'd forego a paycheck and chance to get his game together. Like a I said before, the daily testing makes visiting people even safer and now if his grandparent already had it then its even less of an issue.

    I think a whole lot of these players are going to regret this in a year or two. Careers are short.

    Despite having asthma and being at risk, as of right now Steelers IDL Cam Heyward has indicated he's going to play this year. I'll be honest, from a health and cap situation, I wish he would opt out for the year. From a cap perspective it would push off his new contract by a year, and open up $13mil in cap space this year to roll over into a cap shrinking year.

    With these moves, NE goes from being right up against the cap to 24.7M in cap space. It'll be interesting to see if they decide to splash with that money or if they're going to pocket it to carry over next year. Clowney or Griffin would be interesting, then there's potentially cheap role players like Glenn, Denard, or maybe even Wake/Daniels if they want to kick the tires on older vets.

    its his excuse when cam fails with a legit team/goat coach/good oline etc.

    I doubt they do something big other than kick tires on vets. Besides with McDougald on the Jets, Clowney reportedly told them to “come and get him”.

    I highly doubt Clowney wants to play for the Jets. If there's anything to that, he probably wants them to pay premium price. I bet he plays for less than 12M for a playoff caliber team before he takes less than 18M to play for a bad team. I'm expecting him to sign with the Saints if they do some restructuring.

    Feel like the splashes will still be few and far between around the league. Cap will drop next year, although it seems like they've put a floor on the drop, so rolling as much cap as possible to next year is wise for most teams.

    The #Chiefs have announced that RB Damien Williams informed the team of his decision to opt out for the 2020 season.

    Most lineman in the NFL meet the comorbidity preexisting condition for Covid-19 complications because of a BMI greater than 30. Epidemiological meta studies done around the world conclusively indicate that high body mass, even if a lot of it is muscle, is still linked to higher all cause mortality. Having lots of muscle puts a burden on the overall circulatory system. What does Covid-19 effect the most? Circulatory system.
