NFL receiver Cole Beasley has never been shy about giving his thoughts on controversial topics around the world. This includes COVID-19 and vaccines. The receiver is well-known for his stance on the subject and chose not to get vaccinated (as is his right), but he was heavily fined for it.
Back when the COVID-19 pandemic was at its peak, there was a lot of outrage at players who didn’t get vaccinated, with Beasley being one of them. He was outspoken about it, which had many people offside with him.
He has now commented on Jalen Ramsey’s status after the corner sealed a move to Miami in which Ramsey stated that prayer works. Beasley chimed in and said God has better things to do. Then came a reply from a fan who said it was big talk for Beasley considering he didn’t wear a mask during COVID.
“That didn’t protect anybody’s children.”
So it appears that Cole Beasley is still steadfast in his thoughts on the COVID pandemic.
Cole Beasley critical of NFL COVID policies
The receiver has long been outspoken about the vaccine mandate and even got hit in his wallet as well. The receiver was fined $140,000 for breaking protocols in the Bills facility back in December of 2021.
He was also highly critical of the NFL’s COVID policy as he missed the Bills game against the New England Patriots because of it. He took to social media and explained that COVID wasn’t stopping him from playing, more so the rules around it which got a lot of attention.
The receiver didn’t state that he was “anti-vax” but moreso that he believed that people should have a choice whether to get vaccinated or not instead of being forced into getting the vaccine.
Last year, he played for the Buffalo Bills and then the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finishing the year with six catches for 35 yards.
But one thing we know isn’t coming to an end: Cole Beasley’s outspoken views on COVID.
