San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Travis Benjamin has opted out of the 2020 NFL season, he announced Tuesday night.
Benjamin is the first member of the 49ers to opt out for the season, and his announcement comes one day after general manager John Lynch said he had yet to have a conversation with a player who had planned on opting out. NFL players have until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday to opt out for the season.
Benjamin, who signed a one-year contract with the 49ers in March, announced he was opting out via his Twitter page.
