The NFL Players Association has been advising players not to participate in voluntary offseason workouts at team facilities due to Coronavirus concerns. Unfortunately, Broncos offensive tackle Ja’Wuan James suffered a torn Achilles tendon away from the team facility and is now set to lose over $10 million in guaranteed salary.

On Friday, James was placed on the non-football injury list and by league rule, the Broncos are not contractually obligated to pay him due to the fact that the injury occurred away from team supervision outside of an NFL facility.

Not only are the Broncos not going to pay the $9.85 million they would have owed James but they also reportedly plan to go after his $3 million signing bonus.

James took to Twitter to call out the NFLPA to have his back after advising him to train away from the team facility before his injury.

According to NFL insider Benjamin Allbright, NFL players are angry at the players union for not having a plan in place if a player got injured away from the team facility.
