No, Bears QB Nick Foles isn't actually opting out of the 2020 NFL season


Be honest: you and your Bears group chat definitely sent and/or received texts about this here tweet: 

That's notable news! Think of all the emergency podcasts that'd follow. Foles would be the first quarterback to announce his decision to opt-out of the 2020 season, and the ripple effects would dramatically impact both the Bears and the NFC North as a whole. It'd unquestionably be the biggest story of the team's 2020 season so far. For 90-120 minutes on Tuesday afternoon, it was shaping up to be. 

But then, more tweets arrived. More tweets always arrive: 

John, Mike, and Dan all sound pretty certain. John and Dan even talked to the family! So it's settled, apparently: Nick Foles is not opting out of the 2020 season. The case is closed until tomorrow, when we will presumably get our next Twitter rumor, and I will see you all then.
