DeAndre Hopkins of the Cardinals and other NFL athletes have retaliated against the league’s COVID policy, which targets unvaccinated players.

When the NFL published a memo on Thursday notifying all 32 clubs that COVID outbreaks among unvaccinated players might result in game forfeiture and loss of play, players are retaliating.
NFL SAYS COVID OUTBREAKS AMONG UNVACCINATED LAYERS MAY RESULT IN FORFEITURE OF GAMES, LOSS OF PAY UNDER NEW POLICY “Never thought I’d say this, but being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to join in the vaccine is making me rethink my future in the NFL,” Arizona Cardinals veteran wideout DeAndre Hopkins tweeted shortly after the news broke.
According of the document, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell does not intend to add another week to accommodate games that must be rescheduled due to COVID outbreaks.
It went on to say that if an outbreak among unvaccinated athletes occurs, both teams could face forfeiture and pay penalty if the games are canceled.
Jalen Ramsey of the Los Angeles Rams posted to Twitter to claim that the NFL is “pressuring/ persuading” players to get vaccinated as a result of the new policy.

“The NFL is pressuring/’influencing’ players to receive the vaccine,” says one source.
They claim that if an outbreak occurs, the team will be severely reprimanded.
My point is that no one on my team will feel pressured by me since “whether you are vaccinated or not, you still have a possibility of getting covid.” “Just because my teammate(s) choose not to get the vaccine, I will not consider them a terrible teammate,” he continued.
“That’s all there is to it.”
Hopkins responded to Ramsey’s texts by indicating that his girlfriend’s brother, who is in the military, had cardiac difficulties after receiving the vaccine.
