Players without risk can receive $150,000, according to the agreement approved last week by the league and the NFL Players Association, although the voluntary opt-out stipend is solely an advance toward future salary.

Wide receiver Da'Mari Scott on Sunday became the second New York Giants player to opt out of the 2020 season, joining left tackle Nate Solder. Scott, who turns 25 this week, played 55 snaps on offense and 33 snaps on special teams in five games for the Giants in 2019. He caught two passes for 22 yards, rushed once for 5 yards, returned six punts for 32 yards and returned four kickoffs for 110 yards.

He began his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills in 2018, appearing in three games. The window for NFL players to opt out ends on Tuesday.

Players considered high risk for COVID-19 can earn a $350,000 stipend and an accrued NFL season if they decide to opt out. Players without risk can receive $150,000, according to the agreement approved last week by the league and the NFL Players Association, although the voluntary opt-out stipend is solely an advance toward future salary. The stipend is not available to undrafted rookies. The Giants also waived eight players to reach the 80-man roster limit: running back Jon Hilliman, safety Rashaan Gaulden, cornerback Shakial Taylor, quarterback Case Cookus, fullback George Aston and linebackers Chris Peace, Oluwole Betiku Jr. and Dana Levine.
