Report: CFL players can opt for contracts from Monday


The Players Association of the Canadian Football League informs players on Friday evening that they can opt out of their contracts as of Monday following the conclusion of an agreement between the ACFL and the league after the cancellation of the 2020 season, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The reported deal would allow CFL players to participate in NFL practice. The NFL has chosen to forgo playing preseason games amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but is expected to begin its regular season on September 10.

According to Pelissero, retiring CFL players would be released outright, with veterans receiving a stipend of $ 6,600. Players who do not disengage would receive additional allowances.

The CFL canceled its 2020 season on August 17 due to the pandemic.
