A growing number of NFL players are speaking out against the vaccine.
This includes Super Bowl champions and the highest-paid receiver in the league, DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins plays wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals.
The NFL is reportedly pushing to vaccinate players. The NFL released a memo to teams saying that a team experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players will forfeit the game. Hopkins said he is “questioning his future.”
“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 said before deleting the tweet.
NFL all-pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey said, “Some of y’all clearly didn’t get what I’m saying here lol.. the NFL is pressuring/ ‘influencing’ guys to get the vaccine.
He continued, “They are saying if there is an outbreak, the team will be penalized heavily.”
“My point is no teammate of mine will feel that pressure from me because whether you are vaccinated or not, there is still a chance of getting covid,” Ramsey added. “I thought my point was simple but I guess not lol. ”
“Just because my teammate(s) personally decide not to get the vaccine, I won’t think they are a bad teammate,” he concluded.
NFL reporter Tom Pelissero said, “The NFL just informed clubs that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week season in 2021 due to a COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will FORFEIT and be credited with a loss for playoff seeding, per sources. Massive implications.”

More from Daily Wire:
Leonard Fournette, running back on the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has also appeared to speak out against the league, tweeting “Vaccine I can’t do it…”. He quickly deleted the post.
In June, the NFL released their protocols for training camps and the 2021 NFL preseason… For players who have been fully vaccinated, nearly all restrictions have been relaxed. Masks and daily testing will no longer be required, travel restrictions have been lifted, they will be allowed to eat in the cafeteria with other vaccinated individuals, and no restrictions will be placed on social/media/marketing/sponsorship opportunities, among other things.
TRENDING 👇 Video: Angry Leftist Confronts Tucker Carlson
More recently, Tucker Carlson was confronted at a sporting goods store in Livingston, Montana. “You are the worst human being known to mankind,” a man said to Carlson inside the store. “I want you to know that.” The video was posted to Instagram with another horrible remark by the man: “It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an a**hole!”
The left-wing agitator continued to criticize Carlson by saying, “This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.”
However, Tucker Carlson handled the situation by showing the leftist “who the bigger man was with his reaction.” “I’m not going to debate you,” Carlson said and then turned to smile at the person recording the video. “I don’t care, man,” the man replied. “Dude, you are the worst human being known to man. I want you to know that… I don’t care that your daughter’s here. What you’ve done to people’s families, what you have done to everybody else.”
“Son,” Carlson said and walked away. “Don’t call me son,” he responded “in a threatening manner,” Kyle Becker of Becker News reports. Watch for yourself:
