The NFL shocked everybody on Thursday after announcing the new rules for COVID-19 vaccinations that will go into effect starting for the 2021 season. The list of new rules are intricate, but the bottom line is that these rules are a benefit for players that have received the vaccinations.

Many players have expressed their concerns with the new rules handed down by the NFL. Los Angeles Rams star Jalen Ramsey went on a wild rant, and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins shocked everybody with a tweet hinting at a possible retirement from the NFL.

It didn’t stop there, and other NFL players reacted to the news, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette, although it was deleted shortly after.

Other NFL players chimed in, including New England Patriots’ Matthew Judon and Jalen Richard of the Las Vegas Raiders.


The players aren’t too thrilled about the rules which, in a way, encourages them to get vaccinated. If not, NFL teams risk forfeiting games and losing money if games have to be canceled. Darius Butler also chimed in with a few tweets after the NFL announced the new rules.

Other former NFL stars shared their thoughts on the situation as well.

It is a mild surprise that players are in such an uproar, and it will be interesting to see if the number of vaccines increases after the new policies were announced.
