The NFL may have a fake vaccine card problem on their hands.

On Friday, The Defector spoke to several people including agents, players, and league sources, and found out that the NFL’s vaccine card verification system had several holes in it.

According to one agent, he believes 10-15 percent of players in the league have fake vaccine cards.

Based on what that agent learned from his conversation with this player and others similarly shut down as close contacts in 2021, he estimates that 10–15 percent of players have a fake vaccine card. “I think it is a lot more common than people realize,” he said. “Look, you’re talking about the NFL. These guys do anything they can to fudge a weed test or a PED test.”

Other agents who also spoke to The Defector claim that the league isn’t look very hard to prove whether the vaccine cards are real or not.

It doesn’t seem like the NFL or the agents want to press too hard on the matter because they’re afraid of what they might find.
