It seems that not only the New England Patriots will have staffing problems soon. More and more NFL players are refusing to play in the 2020 season because of the risk of contracting the coronavirus. All have these or those excuses. We can understand them. It remains only to name them.
The Broncos right tackle Ja’Wuan James, who missed almost the entire 2019 season due to a knee injury, decided to skip 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic.
The Bears starter di-tack Eddie Goldman decided to skip the 2020 season due to the danger of contracting the coronavirus.
The Ravens receiver De’Anthony Thomas decided to skip the 2020 season due to the threat of the coronavirus infection. Last year he also played for Kansas City. In Baltimore, Thomas played in 8 games, returning 13 antlers and 10 kicks off. In March, he signed a one-year contract with the team. Thomas is entitled to a compensation payment of $ 150 thousand.

The newly-minted Patriots receiver Marqise Lee, who has just moved from Jacksonville to Foxboro this year, will miss the 2020 season due to the coronavirus. Looks like his teammates won’t need to worry about this situation.
