The Bears have lost a key player to their defense due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Eddie Goldman team informed the Bears team about a defensive solution.
The report suggests that Goldman has health problems, which may mean he has a medical need and will receive a $ 350,000 scholarship. Players who unsubscribe without medical necessity will receive a $ 150,000 scholarship. Goldman has a fully guaranteed base salary of $ 4.75 million this season, which will now become his salary for next season. He will have to pay a scholarship next year.
After the second round of the 2015 selection round, Goldman has become one of the most important players in the Bears defense and will be missing in 2020.
