Vaccine Refusal Could Force NFL Star Into Retirement

"It's still a personal choice, but I don't see a reason not to be vaccinated." – Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians

CNN – Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley, in a challenge to the National Football League’s new Covid-19 training camp and preseason protocols, tweeted that he’d rather retire than get a vaccine.
