Deion Sanders, unquestionably one of the best to ever play in the NFL, has made his stance perfectly clear for the folks that have opted out for the 2020 season: Bye.
Prime took to twitter on Friday night and explained for all to see that The Show WILL go on.
“All Players OPTING out in all sports PLEASE BELIEVE the game will go on without u. This is a business & don’t u EVER forget that. There’s NO ONE that’s bigger than the game itself. Only the ref,umps & officials are that important that u can’t play without them. NOT YOU! #Truth“
At final count there were 69 players that opted to skip the season by the deadline assigned by the league.
As Clay Travis points out:
69 players opted out of the NFL season, 17 of whom were starters. A lot of attention is given to the 2.7% who opted out, but how about the 97.3% who opted in?
