1:11 PM PT — White ultimately decided to NOT sit out this season … ESPN’s Chris Mortenson reported Thursday.
Buffalo Bills superstar Tre’Davious White is considering NOT playing in 2020 over COVID-19 concerns … and he’s going scorched earth on ANYONE who has a problem with that.
“Crazy that me choosing my family’s wellbeing over a game comes with so called fans attacking and questioning me and saying I’m selfish,” the All-Pro corner said Thursday.
“No you guys are selfish for thinking that football is bigger than life.”
The 25-year-old added, “Oh by the way my girl’s grandfather passed from COVID. U understand now?”
Tre would be BY FAR the biggest name to not participate in the ’20 season over coronavirus fears … and from the sounds of things, he’s leaning toward doing exactly that.
The NFL’s opt-out deadline is Thursday … so we’ll know Tre’s decision in just a matter of hours — but the defensive back, who has kids, told reporters Wednesday he was really wrestling with the move.
“I’m still kind of undecided,” White said. “Honestly.”
The decision is a big one … White is the Bills’ best player is only a season or two away from cashing in on a HUGE new contract in Buffalo.
The NFL says players have until 4 PM ET to make the opt out call. Stay tuned.
