Source: Free-agent guard Larry Warford opts out of 2020 season

Three-time Pro-Bowl guard Larry Warford, who has received multiple offers as a free agent since being cut by the New Orleans Saints, is opting out of the 2020 season, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Warford is looking to start a family and will continue to train and revisit playing in 2021, the source said.

The Saints released Warford on May 8, saving more than $7 million in salary-cap space and paving the way for first-round draft pick Cesar Ruiz to earn a starting job.8

Warford, 29, made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons with the Saints after they signed him away from the Detroit Lions with a four-year, $34 million contract in 2017.

It became evident New Orleans was considering a change after it re-signed left guard Andrus Peat to a lucrative extension in free agency and selected Ruiz with the 24th overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-3, 317-pound Warford began his career as a third-round pick with the Lions out of Kentucky in 2013 and became an immediate starter.nfl cheap nike jerseys

He has started 101 regular-season games, including 44 over the past three years in New Orleans. He also started five playoff games with the Saints.
