Kansas City, MO -  Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif will opt-out of the 2020 NFL Season to focus on providing healthcare using his medical doctorate. 

"This is one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make in my life but I must follow my convictions and do what I believe is right for me personally. That is why I have decided to take the Opt Out Option negotiated by the League and the NFLPA and officially opt out of the 2020 NFL season," Duvernay-Tardif said in the tweet.
