Each team around the NFL is trying to reach an 85% threshold of vaccinated players and staff so that they can operate under normal circumstances, but reaching that number isn’t proving to be all that easy.

Not every player in the league is going to decide to receive the vaccine and the NFL knows this, therefore, the league recently established new protocols that severely limit players who have not been vaccinated.

Per the NFL Players Associations, unvaccinated players must wear masks and be subject to daily COVID testing, may not eat with their teammates, be subject to travel restrictions, not leave their team hotels, and are even forbidden from engaging in social media, marketing, and sponsorship activities.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley doesn’t agree with the league’s decisions and let his thoughts be heard in a Twitter rant calling out the NFLPA.

“This is crazy. Did we vote on this? I stay in the hotel. We still have meetings. We will all be together. Vaccinated players can go out the hotel and bring COVID back in to where I am. So what does it matter if I stay in the hotel now? 100 percent immune with vaccination? No,” Beasley wrote. “The players association is a joke. Call it something different. It’s not for the players.”

Beasley wasn’t done there, he went on to explain that he understands why the NFL is putting these protocols in place – the league is trying to make the most money possible – but he also questioned if anyone would fight for the players.

This isn’t the first time Beasley has enraged some on social media by sharing his thoughts on COVID-19.

Back in May, the 32-year-old tweeted that he doesn’t wear a mask outside in response to a then-new update on face coverings from Dr. Anthony Fauci.
