REPORT: Jets LB C.J. Mosley Opts Out Of 2020 Season


New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley becomes the latest player to opt out of 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mosley, the highest-paid player on the Jets, was due to make a total of $16 million this year. He already received $10 million in the form of a roster bonus, paid in mid-March. He was scheduled to make $6 million in base pay.

In a span of a week, the Jets have lost their top two players on defense. They traded All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to the Seahawks last Saturday, and now Mosley is gone.

Mosley, who signed a five-year, $85 million contract last season after five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, missed 14 games in 2019 because of a groin injury that required surgery.
