But things will likely get considerably less comfortable for unvaccinated players in a few weeks.

The league and union are still working out details on how training camp protocols will look, but the current state of the rules can provide a window into the future on that.

• Unvaccinated players still have daily testing; vaccinated players do not.

• Unvaccinated players have to wear masks; vaccinated players do not.

• Unvaccinated players must quarantine after COVID-19 exposure; vaccinated players don’t need to.

• Travel restrictions have been lifted for vaccinated players; they remain in place for unvaccinated players.

• There are capacity limits in the weight room for unvaccinated players; there aren’t for vaccinated players.

• Unvaccinated players have to do grab-and-go meals at the facility; vaccinated players can eat in the cafeteria.

• Unvaccinated players can’t participate in in-person marketing/media opportunities; vaccinated players can.

• Unvaccinated players can’t use the sauna or steam room; vaccinated players can.

And then, there’s the prospect that, between now and camp, the NFL and NFLPA could push over the goal line a proposal further easing restrictions on teams that have 85% of players vaccinated.


Not sure if the NFLPA would buy off on it, but...

I wonder if you could fine unvaccinated players were they to become infected during the season and miss a game. The fine wouldn't be imposed because the player became infected (after all, there was a reported Covid outbreak amongst vaccinated players/staff on a MLB team this season). But rather a likely failure to adhere to Covid protocols for unvaccinated players (e.g. limiting one's contact with other unvaccinated people) that likely led to the exposure.

Who knows...

One thing that I don't want to hear, though...is a player who opted out of playing last season because of Covid concerns now declining vaccination.
