Unvaccinated NFL players could now be fined $14,650 for violating COVID-19 rules.
This comes after Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said he would fine his players "$14,000 on the spot every time he isn't wearing a mask or is breaking a protocol."
Arians told ESPN it wasn't his own policy but "league rules" in a text and this was confirmed to ESPN.
The fine news comes two days after the NFL announced it would enforce forfeits in the event of a COVID-19 cancellation.
"The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to updated COVID-19 protocols for 2021 training camp and preseason," a reporter says they were informed by a source. "How different will life by for vaccinated and unvaccinated players? From the memo that just went to clubs."
The Covid-19 numbers have been getting higher due to the recent Delta variant. People who have refused to take the vaccine have been blamed for the rise.
