Marquise Goodwin Opts Out of 2020 Season

Like all other sports leagues that are starting back up, the NFL is allowing any player to opt-out of the upcoming season without being fined or otherwise penalized. Players deemed high-risk will receive $350,000 in place of their normal salary, and those who do not fall under that category will receive $150,000 in place of their normal salary.

New Eagles wide receiver Marquise Goodwin informed the team today that he plans to use the opt-out.

The news isn't that shocking considering his family's tragic background and now finally has a newborn he wants to raise. Since Goodwin himself isn't considered high-risk, he should be receiving $150,000 that the NFLPA bargained for in their new agreeement with the league.

With Goodwin now out of the picture for 2020, here's what I believe would be the updated wide receiver depth chart heading into training camp.

Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Jalen Reagor are all locks to make the team. I do ultimately think they will keep six receivers, and that last spot will belong to either Quez Watkiins or John Hightower. Right now I am giving a slight advantage to Watkins.

The deadline for players to announce their opt-out is on August 3rd.
