The NFLPA announced that it has reached an agreement with players on moving forward with the 2020 season.

The NFLPA said that its board approved the deal by a 29-3 margin.

NFL Network reported that the agreement will allow high-risk players to opt out from the upcoming season due to coronavirus concerns. The league will also spread out the financial impact from the upcoming year over the next four seasons. The league projects lower revenue due to the coronavirus.

The NFLPA said earlier this week that it was pushing for enhanced testing, treatment and contact tracing protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic as part of the deal.
