Was Cole Beasley right about COVID-19 vaccination testing for the NFL? Should vaccinated players be tested more?

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley was dogged by people on social media including his own fanbase. I know because I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan. I mean fans were calling for him to be cut. Fans did not want him on the team. It was sad, even though he is one of the best slot wide receivers in the country.

Beasley claimed it made no sense to only test vaccinated players every 14 days because they could be unknowingly passing the virus to others in their families, acquaintances or teammates.

Cole Beasley said some other things on Twitter that really fired up the fans, but the one thing he wanted more than ever was that vaccinated and unvaccinated be treated the same. He said he had completed his studies in the vaccine and he felt that there was not enough evidence to force anyone to take it. Beasley stuck to his guns, he was dogged, and kept quiet.

Well, today Beasley was sent home. He was not alone. Gabriel Davis the second year wide out and veteran defensive tackle Star Lotulelei were all sent home. Beasley, Davis and Star all walked into practice today to be tested, which all tested negative and were sent home. They were in close contact with a coach. The wild thing.

The COACH WAS FULLY VACCINATED, but came down with the sickness. So Beasley, Davis and Star were all sent home and now have to wait five days before returning.

Beasley is not the only person speaking up about this anymore. Other players around the league are also fighting this. Arizona Cardinals offensive guard Justin Pugh said this recently.

Jordan Phillips the former Bills defensive tackle and current Cardinals star agreed after he was placed on the COVID-19 list. He also stated he was fully vaccinated.

So here is the question, why has the NFL not cracked down on vaccinated players more? It sounds like no one knows what they are doing. Do we owe Cole Beasley an apology? Maybe his research was better than the NFL’s? I mean who knows, but the NFL needs to fix this quickly because it is getting worse.
