James Burgess Opt Out?

Recommended Posts

Just noticed this on the CBS transactions list for yesterday: (sorry if this has been posted and discussed already)

 

Aug 5, 2020 James Burgess OLB

Reserve/DNR COVID-19 Opt-Out

 

Looks like along with Mosley Burgess is also out for the year unless I'm reading this wrong.

More playing time for Zuniga I would assume!  Hopefully he surprises.

Good thing Cashman and Williamson are both good LBs.

Maybe we'll see more 4-3 defenses? A lot of talent on the D-line.

With Mosley out, I don't see why not.  He was the limiting factor in all of this.  You don't pay an ILB $17M to sit on the bench or try to play MLB when he doesn't fit in that role.  Now that decision is easy.

What's going on w/the opt-out period? I thought the deadline was 08/03.

Believe it's today at 4.

Also a year away from AARP benefits 

A young team needs some veteran leadership on and off the field.

I like Burgess.  He played well last year and has a solid shot again this year.

Awesome thanks for finding that!  Yeah he really did shine last year, glad he'll hopefully be playing this year.

CBS just posted another article listing all players by team who opted out, and Burgess is on that list still.

Season is still over a month out.  Burgess should be recovered from the Rona by then

He should be kissing every guy on the team on the mouth right now. 

Let's get it over with so that we don't get any surprises during the season..

Jets website has him on the COVID list, not the opt-out list so I'll trust that over CBS.

In other Jets website news, we have a hard-hitting safety wearing #33. Anthony Cioffi has switched to that number.

Also, Frank Gore takes Trenton Cannon's old #25.

Loved watching this kid last year. Kind of a throwback for me.  Hits like a mule and seems the type that would rather get carried off than pulled from a game.  A football player.
