It’s amazing what a fine can do to sway an NFL player’s mind into doing the right thing. It could be remembered that the pair of Buffalo Bills receivers in Isaiah McKenzie and Cole Beasley was fined by the league for violating the NFL’s protocol for COVID-19 safety measures. The two were caught not wearing masks inside the Bills’ facility and while Beasley has not changed his tune one bit (and it doesn’t seem he will ever subscribe to the idea wholeheartedly) McKenzie is now in Team Vaxxed after getting jabbed on Saturday.

Not only has McKenzie gotten a strong weapon against COVID-19, but he’s also immunized himself from more fines related to the same one he just dealt with.

The NFL has recently released a memo across the league stating that any game that can’t push through because of COVID-19 reasons and unvaccinated players will not have the benefit of getting rescheduled. This is unlike last year when the league was open to moving a game to a later date, but that was also when the vaccine was not yet available.

McKenzie, who signed a one-year deal worth $1.12 million with the Bills back in March, played in all 16 games in 2020 and posted just 282 receiving yards and five touchdowns on 30 receptions.
