NEW ORLEANS, LA – Saints tight ends Jason Vander Laan and Cole Wick have decided to opt-out of the 2020 NFL season.
Wick reportedly has an asthma condition.
The deadline for players to opt out due to the coronavirus pandemic is 7 days after the new CBA is finalized.
Wick is listed under the “voluntary” opt out which means his contract will toll and will be applicable the following season; however, he will not receive an accrued season.
Wick is eligible for a stipend of $150,000.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that former Saints 3-time Pro Bowl guard, Larry Warford, is also choosing to opt out. Warford is currently a free agent.
