As we saw from Major League Baseball and the NBA, getting an agreement done that makes everybody happy is hard to do. It's all in the name of safety and security for those involved, but actually getting that can be difficult. The NFL and NFLPA are in the throws of negotiation right now and here is what the players are asking for from the NFL according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
- An opt-out clause for at-risk players to receive salary (but not bonuses) if they decide not to play.
- An opt-out clause for players with at-risk families to earn an accrued season and benefits if they decide not to play.
- An opt-out clause for players who leave the team after reporting (terms uncertain).
- A $250,000 stipend guaranteed to all players if they show up to camp and everything is shut down because of COVID-19 concerns. That amount rises to $500,000 if the season starts, only to be shut down.
