DeAndre Hopkins is not a happy man.
The Arizona Cardinals WR took to Twitter and first contemplated his future in the NFL after the league announced Thursday it will potentially punish teams with forfeits and loss of game checks if virus outbreaks among unvaccinated players cause unfixable scheduling issues.
“Never thought I would say this,” the Arizona Cardinals superstar said in a since-deleted tweet.
“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.”
After it was up for about 30 minutes, Hopkins deleted his original tweet and tweeted simply, “Freedom?”
He went further into detail on why he is so against the vaccine in more released tweets.
“My girlfriend brother in the military got the vaccine and had heart problems right after. When you stand for something they hate you!”
“They love you one minute then hate you the next! Know thyself.”
In addition to Thursday’s new policy, the league has also placed heavy restrictions on players who have yet to get the vaccine.
Last season, the NFL rearranged schedules to make sure games postponed due to COVID-19 outbreaks would still be played. This season, the league says it won’t be doing that.
