With NFL training camps opening, players have a difficult decision to make: prepare for the 2020 season or opt out.

The NFL Players Association and the league reached an agreement that allows players to sit out the season amid concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Players who qualify as a high-risk opt-out — those who have been diagnosed with a condition from a modified list of the Centers for Disease Control risk factors list — can receive a $350,000 stipend that will not count against future earnings. Players who otherwise voluntarily opt out can receive $150,000 as a salary advance on their existing contracts.

For both groups, their contracts will toll to the next year.

Here are the NFL players who currently plan to sit out the upcoming season:
