Jimmy Graham felt like he had no choice in whether or not to get vaccinated.
The Chicago Bears tight end tweeted a release from the NFLPA about increased testing of vaccinated players for coronavirus, and wrote, “Was basically forced into getting the vaccine. Now I’m just confused. @NFLPA.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I told you all that you were only going to see more and more players speak out about the league’s handling of coronavirus.
While the NFL is busy treating unvaccinated players like prisoners, the UFC won’t force fighters to get vaccinated or place restrictions on them.

The league has gone out of its way to make life a living hell for everyone who remains unvaccinated, and that’s been a successful strategy.
NFL vaccination rate is now at 90 percent of all players. If only the rest of us were doing that well.

Now, the NFLPA plans on recommending to the NFL that testing of vaccinated players is increased. Yeah, if you think players are going to take that without saying anything, then you’re living in a land of delusion.
Multiple other players have already spoken out about the vaccine and protocols, and Graham just admitted that he felt like he had no choice in taking it.
