Buffalo Bills’ Cole Beasley rejects Covid vaccine on Twitter and says ‘other players agree’ after slamming NFL rules


BUFFALO Bills' star Cole Beasley has rejected a Covid vaccine, saying he would "rather die actually living."

The wide receiver made the announcement on Twitter on Friday, arguing that "other players agree" with him.

Beasley said: "I will be outside doing what I do. If you're scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated.

"I'd rather take my chances with Covid and build up immunity that way.

"I may die of Covid, but I'd rather die actually living."

The outspoken NFL star in May said he would not be getting the jab.

After Dr Anthony Fauci said people vaccinated did not need to wear a mask Beasley tweeted: "I do that without being vaccinated. Is this illegal now?"

NFL rules state that unvaccinated players must wear masks and be tested for Covid each day.

They are not allowed to eat with their teammates and will also face travel restrictions, CBS reports.
