NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers has now been fined by the NFL for refusing to follow it’s regulations for Covid-19.
As The Hill reports:
The NFL has fined quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers for violating COVID-19 protocols, days after news broke that the star player is unvaccinated.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday evening that the Packers were fined $300,000 and that Rodgers and his teammate Allen Lazard were each fined $14,650 for attending a Halloween party while unvaccinated.
Players who have not received the jab are not permitted to gather outside of the club facility in groups of more than three players, McCarthy noted.
The team was notified of the fines Tuesday evening, after the NFL finished its review. They were also told that future violations could lead to escalated discipline, including a change of draft position or a loss of draft choices, according to McCarthy.
The fine comes after Rodgers revealed to the world that he has not yet been vaccinated.
