Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Al Woods is opting out of the 2020 season because of the coronavirus pandemic, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

"While I was excited to join the Jaguars, I have made the tough decision, given the current status of COVID-19, to opt out for the 2020 season," Woods said in a statement. "The health and safety of my family has always been the most important thing in my life. I love the game of football and will be rooting hard for my teammates this season, and I look forward to re-joining the Jaguars in 2021."

The 6-foot-4, 330-pound Woods signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Jaguars in March after spending the 2019 season with Seattle. He has 204 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 10 seasons with Tampa Bay, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Tennessee and Indianapolis.
