Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end/special teams standout Lerentee McCray has opted out of the 2020 season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
McCray is entering his seventh NFL season, the last three with Jacksonville. He also played with Denver and Buffalo.
“With the health and safety of my family in mind, I have decided to opt out of the 2020 season during these trying times in ‘Our Nation,’” McCray said. “I was honored to be involved in our team’s social justice efforts during this offseason, and I look forward to continuing to support those affected in any way I can.”
McCray is the second Jaguars player in as many days to opt out, following veteran defensive tackle Al Woods.
Also Saturday, the Jaguars placed cornerback D.J. Hayden (knee) and tight end James O’Shaughnessy (knee) on the active/physically unable to perform list following physicals.
