Comments from a recent radio appearance by Bills General Manager Brandon Beane caught the attention of the league office.

After Beane shared his belief that the league will allow for relaxed COVID-19 protocols for meetings and other parts of the in-person offseason program as long as they’ve reached a high threshold of vaccinated players, he was asked if he’d cut an unvaccinated player in order to reach it.

Given that hypothetical scenario, Beane said he would cut such a player “because it’d be an advantage” for the team to have something closer to a normal offseason experience.

According to multiple reports, the league spoke to Beane about his comments. They also offered a reminder that teams cannot release players due to their vaccination status. There is no mandate for players to get vaccinated in place and the league also has not formalized the kind of changes to protocols that Beane discussed on the radio.

  1. Every GM will do it, Brandon Beane was just being honest and said it..

  2. I personally will not be getting the vaccine. All of my loved ones are vaccinated and I have the anti-bodies from getting COVID, with no symptoms.

    Before everyone gets all sensitive about this; Beane was merely stating to the guys who are barely going to make the roster that they will not be going back to last years offseason mandates if it means that guys 70-90th on the roster are the ones unvaccinated.

  3. So in other words, that may be the underlying reason, but publicly state another.

  4. We all will be required to get vaccinated or lose our jobs.It will happen. Restaurant server in California commenting here.

  5. The league office is out of line. Employment is at will, within limits of law and CBA. Lots of places have said it’s ok to make vaccinations a condition of employment.

    Dumb stuff like this from the management council provides support for collusion theories.

  6. There are many people who don’t smoke, drink, who exercise, eat only organic, non GMO, who are willing to inject a serum with 400 unknown chemicals in their body that was never tested on humans or animals.
    It doesn’t track.
    Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.
    Beware.
    Why would anyone trust government?

    Ever hear of voluntary consent? This will lead to lawsuits and will not be enforceable. Especially knowing this is an experimental gene therapy; not a vaccine. Please do your research and stop being easily misled.
