Fans can't be too surprised that NFL players are opting out of the season due to COVID-19.
The first of the NFL players opting out of the season was Kansas City Chiefs guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. He took to social media to announce he was opting out. Duvernay-Tardif has been working as an orderly at a Montreal long-term facility for the last few months.
As of Tuesday morning on July 28, ten NFL players have opted out of the season. Players have until August 1 to decide whether they will play or not.

While Michael Bennett might not be a first-ballot hall of farmer, he is greatly underrated at his position.
Michael Bennett announce on his Instagram page Tuesday that he would retire after 11 seasons in the NFL.
Bennett started his career undrafted to the Seattle Seahawks before getting cut in the middle of his rookie season in 2009. After signing with Tampa Bay, he improved in his four seasons there finishing his last season there with nine sacks in 2012. He resigned with the Seahawks and played there for five seasons. Bennett averaged about eight sacks per season there, was selected to...
Superman is back and Cam Newton has decided to take his talents to a place colder than North Carolina as he's headed to the New England Patriots.
Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Cam Newton signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots. While no details to the deal has released, the deal is incentive-based.
New England's offseason saw their long time quarterback Tom Brady go to Tampa Bay after 20 seasons in New England. They brought in Brian Hoyer in the offseason as a veteran backup. The Patriots decided to not draft a quarterback and appeared they...
Last season, five of the NFL teams that made the playoffs in 2018 did not return to the playoffs in 2019.
This is a common trend with playoff teams not being able to repeat in consecutive years. Few teams like the New England Patriots return year after year as teams evolve in different ways. There could be at least four teams though that might miss out this season.
2019 NFL Playoff Teams That Could Miss Out
New England Patriots
Tom Brady is no longer in New England which brings many questions to the table. Jarrett Stidham appears to be jumping into the starting...
A new legacy is being built in New England with Jarrett Stidham taking over for Tom Brady at quarterback.
Many Patriot fans have been wanting the team to sign a veteran quarterback to take over. Brian Hoyer was their solution. Not quite what Patriot fans had in mind with the move.
The expectation is Stidham is going to be the successor to Brady after the Patriots didn't draft a quarterback. It didn't come as too much of a surprise as speculation has been New England is very high on Stidham. Very similar to how they felt about Jimmy Garoppolo before they...
The football world is still trying to figure how Cam Newton is still without an NFL team to play on.
Most of the jobs in the NFL are taken, but realistically, about half could be won by Newton. We are in the month of May and it isn't looking so good for the former NFL MVP to land a starting job. It is already being reported that Newton would be open to taking a backup role in the league.
This has to be something Newton was not planning on during the offseason, but it may not be the right move. Newton...
Two days after losing Rob Gronkowski in a trade, the Patriots add a pass catcher.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday morning that wide receiver Marqise Lee agreed to a one year deal with New England.
Lee was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier in the week to become a free agent. He is apart of the clean up that Jacksonville is performing on their roster.
Lee spent six seasons with the team having a strong 2016 and 2017 campaign combining for 1,553 yards and six touchdowns. Since then, Lee only played in six combined games in 2018 and 2019 recording three catches...
The Carolina Panthers were hoping to trade their former franchise quarterback Cam Newton to another team. With no trade in sight, it appears the team is going in another direction.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that the Panthers are expected to cut Newton from the team.
Newton had a physical Monday in Atlanta for his shoulder and foot injuries that he had last season. He was able to pass the physical and appears to be healthy.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Carolina tried to trade Newton to Chicago or the Los Angeles Chargers. Those trades appeared to not have worked out...
The NFL's offseason is officially starting to be a little more interesting. The Las Vegas Raiders might be ready to make a play for future hall of fame quarterback Tom Brady.
Larry Fitzgerald Sr. reported last week that the Raiders are ready to offer Brady $60 million over the next two years to lead the franchise.

Gruden and Carr's Relationship
It would be a move that wouldn't surprise many as there have been reports that head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr have not had the strongest of relationships. In six seasons as the starter, Carr has led to...
To the perspective of NFL fans, Tom Brady had an off season. His completion percentage, yards, and touchdowns was down from last season. Even though the Patriots went 12-4 on the season, people believed the team was not as good as they have been offensively.
Much of that has to do with the inconsistent play of the receivers who had a lot of movement from signings, cuts, trades and injuries. The rushing attack was not as good as expected, since they ranked 18th in the league in rushing yards. After starting the season 10-1, the team lost four of...
