Multiple Buffalo Bills Players Give Vaccine Opinions on Twitter [TWEETS]
NFL training camps are about to get underway across the NFL and for the Buffalo Bills, their first practice is slated for next Wednesday, July 28th.
It's great to be on the brink of the 2021 NFL season, but there was major news on Thursday, as the NFL sent a memo to all 32 clubs, regarding a new important wrinkle when it comes to potential COVID-19 outbreaks with unvaccinated players this season.
According to Tom Pelissaro of The NFL Network, if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week NFL season, due to an outbreak with unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will forfeit the game. It would also go towards playoff seeding.
Numerous players around the league weighed in on Twitter, including multiple Bills players.
Bills offensive lineman Jon Feliciano, edge rusher Jerry Hughes, and wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley gave their separate thoughts and it appears there is major disagreement.
Beasley has been in the news a few times since the spring with tweets regarding the vaccine and the NFL and NFLPA agreement with a different set of rules for vaccinated and unvaccinated players during training camp and preseason.
It's pretty clear that the NFL will not bend over backward to reschedule games during the middle of the week as they did for the 2020 season when games were rescheduled on Tuesday and even Wednesday nights.
We'll see if this new memo will have to be acted upon but I think I speak for everyone when I say I hope it doesn't.
