2021 5th-Year Option Decisions

2021 5th-Year Option Decisions

The deadline to decide on 2021 options for each 2017 first round pick is May 4th. For those that are declined, it means the player can become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming 2020 season. Exercised options won't become fully guaranteed until the first league day of 2021, but are guaranteed for injury right immediately upon the exercise. Christian McCaffrey's option was bypassed for an extension, while Taco Charlton was already released out of his rookie contract, nullifying his option year.
