Laurent Duvernay-Tardif opts out of 2020 season

Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has become the first NFL player to opt out of the 2020 NFL season.

Duvernay-Tardif spent time in the offseason on the frontlines (link) in Quebec and is the only NFL player with a medical degree.

According to Adam Schefter, he will only make $150,000 in 2020, instead of the $2.75 million he would have received had he played.

Instead of playing, he will continue working on the frontlines in Canada at a long-term care facility.
