Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (#11), who normally lines up as a slot receiver, has been an opponent of the NFL’s bizarre and oppressive COVID policies from the beginning. This past July, he said, ”I’m not anti- or pro-vax — I’m pro-choice. With that being said, the issue at hand is information being withheld from players in order for a player to be swayed in a direction he may not be comfortable with.”
Last month, when he was suspended for testing positive, Beasley posted on IG, “Just to be clear COVID is not keeping me out of this game. The rules are,” he wrote in the post. “Vaxxed players are playing with Covid every week now because they don’t test. One of my vaxxed teammates is in the hospital missing games. I’m sure he didn’t get this same energy. Thank you for those who support. Everyone else, if you don’t get what’s happening then there is nothing anybody can do for you.”
Cole is a journeyman WR in his 30s playing in a small market. He is not a superstar like Tom Brady. He has paid tens of thousands in league fines. Cole has put his career on the line for personal freedom. Let’s show him some love and get a jersey!
