A notorious opponent of the COVID-19 vaccine, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been fined for failing to follow NFL health and safety protocols totaling nearly $100,000 since the start of the pandemic.
That’s what ESPN reported on Sunday, specifying that Paisley’s first crime dates back to last August. The player had to pay $14,600 when league officials visited the Bills facilities.
Since then he has been punished several times for video surveillance from the NFL. The amount of fines had multiplied several times.
On Tuesday, the 32-year-old athlete’s name was added to the list of unavailable athletes due to COVID-19. Beasley, who has not received a coronavirus vaccine, complained about the situation, as he had to miss the game against the New England Patriots on Sunday.
“To be clear, it’s not COVID-19 that’s stopping me from playing, it’s the protocols! Every week, vaccinated players play even if they get COVID-19, because they haven’t been tested,” Beasley said on his Instagram account.
Still, according to ESPN, the Texan will still pay for this meeting due to an agreement between the NFL and the players’ association.
In 14 games this season, Beasley has caught 76 balls for 640 yards and touched down.
