    Mike Moraitis

    Tennessee Titans undrafted free agent and offensive tackle Anthony McKinney was the first player on the team to opt out of the 2020 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  2. I have some thoughts on this (you can guess what they might be) but I'll wait for maniac to express them for me.

  6. Can't be a good decision for a UDFA trying to make it.
     
  7. Possible he gets a nice COVID payout for missing the season (have seen that it is $350k but really didn't investigate) so maybe he likes the bird in the hand better than taking his chances on making the team. Could be a business decision as much as a health one for some guys.

  8. UDFA are not eligible for the salary advance.
     
  9. According to the article, I think he saw the writing on the wall. I'm not sure what he will be able to do if a family member catches the Covid. Watch them likely recover from it?
     
  10. Well then I guess he is just scared of the Rona.
     
  11. From what I saw, he got a good trial run on opting out last year. Might as well go all in.
     
  12. If he put most of it in Kodak stock yesterday he’d be Rich!
     
  13. Don’t sell yourself short judge.
     
  14. HSO McKinney was terrible but wasn’t as bad as whoever played RG all year. That was the worst player on the field every week
