Bills WR Cole Beasley Accumulated $100k in Fines over Virus Protocols

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has reportedly accumulated a total of $100,000 in fines for breaking coronavirus protocols.

Several league and union sources confirmed to ESPN that Beasley had multiple infractions against coronavirus protocols, rules he has vocally opposed from the beginning.

“Beasley was fined $14,600 in August on a day when league officials were in the facility to review the protocols with the Bills, which the NFL did with all 32 teams before the 2021 season,” reported ESPN. “Beasley was observed by one of the league officials when not complying with mandatory protocols for unvaccinated players.”

“The $14,600 fine has been doubled on more than one occasion via video monitoring by the league, per sources. One source estimated the fines have reached the sum of $100,000,” added the report. “Another source believed it was just short of that amount.”

The unvaccinated Beasley tested positive for the coronavirus last Tuesday, causing him to sit out of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, which they won 33 to 21, putting the team ahead of the AFC East division for a possible playoff slot. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Beasley noted that coronavirus rules were responsible for his absence on Sunday.

“Just to be clear COVID is not keeping me out of this game. The rules are,” he wrote. “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.”

Bills offensive lineman Jon Feliciano later confirmed that he was the teammate in the ER that Beasley was referring to.

 

Beasley has maintained he has no issue with the coronavirus vaccine but opposes vaccine mandates and coronavirus protocols.

“I may die of covid, but I’d rather die actually living,” he said in July. “I’d rather take my chances with Covid and build up my immunity that way. Eat better. Drink water. Exercise and do what I think is necessary to be a healthy individual. That is MY CHOICE based on MY experiences and what I think is best.”

“I’ll play for free this year to live life how I’ve lived it from day one,” he added “If I’m forced into retirement, so be it.”
