He becomes the first known NFL player to opt-out of his contract due to the pandemic. Instead, he will continue to work as an orderly at a long-term care facility in Canada.

Chiefs RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was scheduled to make $2.75 million this season and instead will receive $150,000 from the NFL’s op-out deal.

The 29-year-old McGill University product has spent the first six seasons of his career with the Chiefs, starting all 14 regular season games he played last season.
