As a fellow Montrealer, i'm proud to see this. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif's decision to opt out of NFL season, continue medical career. The Super Bowl winner and McGill grad is the first player to opt out of the 2020 season. He was due to earn a base salary of $2.75 million.
“Being on the frontline during this offseason has given me a different perspective on this pandemic and the stress it puts on individuals and our healthcare system. I cannot allow myself to potentially transmit the virus in our communities simply to play the sport that I love. If I’m to take risks, I’ll do it caring for patients.”https://montrealgazette.com/sports/football/nfl/chiefs-players-coach-support-duvernay-tardifs-decision-to-continue-medical-career
