Former Penn State Football Safety Jordan Lucas Opts Out Of 2020 NFL Season
Former Penn State football player Jordan Lucas has opted out of the 2020 NFL season due to the coronavirus.
Lucas, who signed with the Chicago Bears this offseason, was set to enter his fifth season in the league.
Lucas won Super Bowl LIV this past season with the Kansas City Chiefs before signing a one-year, $1 million deal with the Bears earlier this offseason.
The Nittany Lion has served as a depth piece for the majority of his NFL career, bouncing around with the Dolphins, Chiefs, and now the Bears. His best season came in 2018 when he played in 16 games (four starts) for the Chiefs while totaling 32 tackles and one interception.
Lucas had a four-year career with the Nittany Lions from 2012 to 2015. The defensive back totaled 181 tackles, 25 pass deflections, and three interceptions during his Penn State career, proving to be a constant at the back-end of the defense as both a cornerback and a safety.
As of now, Lucas is the only Penn Stater to opt out of the 2020 NFL season. Many well-known players across the league have decided to sit out this season, including C.J. Mosley, Dont’a Hightower, Nate Solder, and Damien Williams.
