The Canadian Football League Players’ Association is informing players on Friday night that they can opt out of their contracts starting on Monday as a result of the CFLPA reaching a deal with the league following the cancellation of the 2020 season, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

The reported deal would enable CFL players to participate in NFL workouts. The NFL has elected to forgo playing preseason games amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but is scheduled to begin its regular season on Sept. 10.

According to Pelissero, CFL players who opt out would be released outright, with veterans receiving a stipend of $6,600. Players who don't opt out would get additional stipends.

The CFL cancelled its 2020 season on Aug. 17 due to the pandemic.
