NFL Free Agent

No players have opted out of the 2021 season, according to a report by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Players had until Friday, July 2 at 4 p.m. to inform the league of their intention to sit out this coming year.

“High-risk” individuals who opted out were again set to be given a $350,000 stipend. Voluntary opt outs by individuals not considered “high-risk” would not receive the stipend.

67 players decided to opt out of the 2020 season amid the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pittsburgh Steelers did not have any players sit out last year.
