Despite new rules and restrictions by the NFL against players/teams who are unvaccinated some players are still holding their ground and refuse to get vaccinated for Covid-19.

On Thursday NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the NFL released an internal memo stating that “if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week schedule due to a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will forfeit and be credited with a loss.”

The NFL’s memo received interesting reactions from players such as DeAndre Hopkins and Cole Beasley.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, one NFL team has 8 players on their squad who refuse to get vaccinated. 7 of the 8 players have been described as “too good to cut.”

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, one NFL team currently has eight players who will not under any circumstances get the vaccine. And seven of those eight players will not under any circumstances be released because of it, due to their skills and abilities as players.

It’s going to be interesting to see if the NFL follows through on their threats to make teams forfeit games if an outbreak does take place among unvaccinated players.
