Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is contemplating retirement after the NFL announced their Draconian COVID-19 vaccine mandates to punish teams with players who exercise their right to refuse.
“Never thought I would say this. But being put in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL,” Hopkins wrote in a tweet that would later be deleted.
His original tweet can be seen here:
The NFL announced on Thursday in a memo to teams that they would be forced to forfeit games if they had players on their teams who were unvaccinated and there was an outbreak.
“If a club cannot play due to a Covid spike in vaccinated individuals, we will attempt to minimize the competitive and economic burden on both participating teams,” the NFL commissioner’s office said in the memo. “… Every club is obligated under the Constitution and Bylaws to have its team ready to play at the scheduled time and place. A failure to do so is deemed conduct detrimental. There is no right to postpone a game.”
