The Bears have lost a key player in defense due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eddie Goldman has announced the team he plans to give up, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The report states that Goldman has health problems, which may mean that he needs medical care and will receive a payment of $ 350,000. Players who waive medical necessities receive a $ 150,000 scholarship. Goldman has a fully guaranteed base salary of $ 4.75 million this season, which will now be his salary next season. He will have to return the payment next year.
The selection of the next round project in 2015 Goldman has become one of the most important players in the defense of the Bears, and it will be missed in 2020.
