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.

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.

Looks like they got that wrong.  He was placed on the COVID-19 list, he didn't opt out:

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.

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

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

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.
