NFL’s Vax Policy Has DeAndre Hopkins Questioning His Future In The League

Videos by OutKick

With news surfacing that the NFL plans to punish teams with positive Covid tests, NFL superstars are beginning to push back. Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins appears less than thrilled with the league’s stance. So much so that he’s questioning his NFL future. And he’s not alone.

Hopkins has since deleted his tweet, but not before the comment received more than 6,000 likes and another 4,000 retweets in less than half an hour.

Though his tweet didn’t go into detail, it’s clear Hopkins has an issue with being forced to inject something into his body or risk his team being punished. Retired quarterback Derek Anderson had no problem bashing the league’s policy:

Those opposing the NFL’s vaccine stance weren’t limited to the offensive side of the ball. Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon sent a tweet that left little room for interpretation:

Meanwhile, Rams defensive back Jalen Ramsey is standing by those teammates who choose against getting vaccinated:

The league had no problem backing players who made the individual choice to kneel for the National Anthem. Hell, the tv broadcasts even had dedicated cameras focused on those players choosing to take a knee. Now they’re punishing players who are making an individual choice to refrain from receiving a vaccination.

With training camps opening across the league, the NFL is in the midst of a shit storm. And they’re going to need a bigger umbrella.

  1. The fact that this “vaccine” is being pushed so hard when it clearly doesn’t even prevent COVID is concerning. Why are they so adamant we all get it? Very suspicious; this alone would make me reluctant to get one.

    Has nothing to do with taking a knee. Stop pandering and gaslighting for bigots and Very Fine People…..There’s only room for one Carlton Banks at Outkick. You’ll be William O’Neal 2.0

  3. The vaccine doesn’t prevent someone from getting covid but it makes it extremely less likely that someone will have much if any symtoms because the viral load is reduced. Also reduces chances of transmitting to someone else.

  4. Every day, new evidence suggest that the Pro Sports Leagues are (non-publicly) getting compensated by ‘someone’ to STRONGLY ENCOURAGE the experimental jab.
    It makes NO business sense to create these hardships on players and teams with worthless ‘Covid health and safety protocols.’ [By the way, try typing the word, ‘covid,’ lowercase. My computer and phone automatically capitalize it… WTF? They don’t even do that for the word, ‘god’!]
    Who is/are the ‘someone’? Big Pharma, the Govt, China, Elites??? All of the above, perhaps via ‘shell entities’???

    Go, Deandre!! And all the others with the courage to say what needs saying, and hearing…

    PLEASE LISTEN & SHARE…

  5. Jim Crews- you can go to the CDC website or ask any doctor. From your response, guessing you haven’t talked with a doctor about the vaccine. It will likely keep you from getting covid. Most healthy people that have been vaccinated will never get covid symptoms. In fact, those that test positive for it most likely only got the test because they are required to regularly get tested for work. It is not because they were sick.

  6. Jim Crews- numerous clinical studies were conducted. Trump had this little operation called Operation Warp Speed…maybe look that up lol. All he did was push the FDA for emergency approval following the clinical studies.

    • What long term studies have been done on safety? None, because it got exemptions to get rushed out on the market. They think it’s generally safe, but when you notice the VAERS reporting system has 10,000% higher reports on this vaccine than any other in history, regardless of that system’s accuracy, you see a disturbing trend that’s abnormal. That’s the entire point. The data is incomplete, and it’s also why despite all the insane political pressure putting us at greater danger, it has not been approved for children. My children won’t be lab rats to test this on, ever. If you’re good putting your children at risk it’s a free country, it’s reckless, but that’s up to you I guess. It’s all a straw man argument to begin with because this illness isn’t as deadly as they’ve portrayed. Your chance of being harmed by the the vaccine may be higher than covid if your under 60 and normal health. That’s everyone’s rightful concern. I’m shocked if you or your doctor don’t see that.
