COVID-19 vaccines are rejected by “a ton” of top NFL players?

Since the spring, the NFL and the NFL Players Association have stated that players are not required to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to compete in the next regular season. However, unvaccinated players can be penalized $14,650 each time they breach health and safety rules connected to the epidemic.
Those who remain unvaccinated must adhere to tight criteria similar to those in place for the 2020 campaign before vaccines became widely available, so players who refuse to get the shots will, on paper, “have a rougher time” from August to the end of the season.
In discussing the possibility of the NFL and NFLPA agreeing to required player vaccines, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk said that “a ton” of great players are opposed to the vaccine, and that mandated player coronavirus vaccines “won’t happen and can’t happen,” according to a source from “the management side of the ledger.”
If those ratings rise or fall after clubs trim rosters later this month, it might lead to some unpleasant locker-room conversations, especially among the league’s lowest-rated teams.
