If you play for the NFL and you are not vaccinated, you may be forced into retirement.
That is what Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley said may happen to him since he refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
In a tweet the other day, Beasley said, "“Hi, I’m Cole Beasley and I’m not vaccinated,” the wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, shared in a statement on Twitter on Friday. “I will be outside doing what I do. I’ll be out in the public. If your [sic] scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period.”
“I may die of covid, but I’d rather die actually living. I have family members whose days are numbered. If they want to come see me and stay at my house then they are coming regardless of protocol,” he added.
He added: “I’ll play for free this year to live life how I’ve lived it from day one,” he added. “If I’m forced into retirement, so be it.”
The NFL and the NFL Player’s Association earlier this month agreed to new COVID-19 guidance, lifting most rules for those who have been vaccinated.
Vaccinated players will be allowed to eat meals as a team, leave hotels when traveling to interact with fans and others, go to media activities, use saunas and steam rooms and more.
But players who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to participate in any of those activities. They will also have to get tested for COVID-19 daily, abide by social distancing guidelines, wear masks and more.
Do you think players should be forced to get vaccinated in order to participate in their team's activities on and off the field?
