Panthers LT Russell Okung "seriously considered" opting out and is still "mulling retirement" due to COVID-19 concerns, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Okung missed 10 games in 2019 with a pulmonary embolism due to blood clots, and reportedly would walk away from the sport if he feels the league and team are not taking the necessary precautions to create a safe environment. He was a priority veteran addition for the Panthers this offseason, sending 27-year old G Trai Turner to the Chargers for the 31-year old Okung to solidify the left tackle spot. Okung's former OL coach, Pat Meyer, will now be his position coach in Carolina and likely was a driving force in bringing him to the team. Second-year T Greg Little likely would fill in on the left side, although he dealt with a number of injuries in just one season as a professional. Aug 07 2:41 pm (EST)
