What's up with the contracts? Do the signed players get paid, regardless? How are the TV contracts structured? Prepaid TV advertising? There's a lot to this. As to what the owners will do, given what we've seen from them on other issues of player safety, I'd bet they'd be willing to open the season without fans in stadiums, and take the small risk that an NFL player, or family member, would die from C19 as a result. They wouldn't say it out loud, but I'd bet that's a calculus they will do in their heads.
