Giants CB Sam Beal Sitting Out the 2020 Season Due to Covid-19 Concerns

Giants cornerback Sam Beal joined more than 50 others around the NFL in exercising every player’s collectively bargained right to opt out due to COVID-19 health concerns, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

It is not clear if his decision will be classified as voluntary ($150,000 cash-advance stipend) or if he is a high-risk case ($350,000 cash-advance stipend) based on personal or family situation.

Beal, 23, is the third Giant to opt out, after starting offensive tackle Nate Solder (high risk) and fringe wide receiver Da’Mari Scott. The deadline for players to opt out is 4 p.m. Thursday.

Beal’s contract freezes with two years remaining but only frees up about $850,000 in salary cap space. He has 26 tackles in six games, including three starts.

The Giants selected Beal in the 2018 supplemental draft, giving up their third-round choice in the 2019 draft to do so. He injured his shoulder in his first pro practice and spent his rookie season on injured reserve.
