More and more players are electing to not participate in the 2020 NFL season prior to the league's opt-out deadline; many of whom wouldn't have made teams in the first place. With training camp well under way, the starting quarterback job for a number of teams is starting to heat up! Alex Smith and Ben Roethlisberger are almost healthy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is buying the XFL, and the guys send their well-wishes to NFL legend Howard Mudd. Learn more about your ad choices.

The MLB season is in jeopardy after multiple players on the Miami Marlins tested positive for COVID-19. This could be a concern for the NFL’s season, but as Mike points out, the two sports operate in completely different ways. Jamal Adams finally gets his wish to leave the New York Jets as he’s traded away to the Seattle Seahawks in a blockbuster deal. Antonio Browns unofficially unretires, the football team in Washington will be called the “Washington Football Team,” and Dont'a Hightower becomes fifth Patriots player to opt out of 2020 NFL season.

The NFL has officially offered to eliminate its preseason entirely and institute the NFLPA’s suggested coronavirus testing program for players. This is a big step towards starting training camp next week, but the NFL still has a number of challenges to work through. Derrick Henry and the Tennessee Titans have agreed to a $50 million contract, which solidifies a one-dimensional offense for the team next season. Antonio Brown retires (again), Chris Jones thinks the Kansas City Chiefs can win five Super Bowls, and Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright wants to become a General Manager.

Washington’s longstanding “Redskins” nickname is officially being retired, but it will still take time for the franchise to decide on a new name. Jadeveon Clowney could sign with a number of different teams, but the New England Patriots won’t be one of them. Myles Garrett is getting a major payday, the Big Ten & Pac-12 have moved to “conference-only” schedules, and Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez want to buy the New York Mets.
