The list of NFL players that have opted out of the 2020 season has grown immensely, but some of the biggest names may be yet to come according to ESPN’s Jermey Fowler.

Fowler reported on Tuesday that “big names” are “strongly considering” opting out ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

As of right now, the New England Patriots have been hit the hardest as some eight players on the squad have opted of playing professional football in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
