Colin Cowherd: “I have no time or patience for Kirk Cousins, Carson Wentz, and Cam Newton not getting vaccinated. It doesn’t matter if you had it last year, the NFL set up protocols – if you’re unvaccinated they’re going to make your life miserable. Take it or you’re going to be a problem. As a quarterback, Kirk Cousins – get vaccinated, Carson Wentz – get vaccinated, Cam – good luck on the open market. There’s a big difference between the Vikings and the Colts who are trapped with their unvaccinated quarterbacks. You can’t get out of Kirk Cousins’ terrible contract. There’s a difference between that and Cam now on the market unvaccinated. Bruh, they’re not going to be much of a market. This isn’t just quarterbacks, it’s life. If you work at a company right now and you’re unvaccinated that’s one thing, but if you’re unemployed looking for work and you’re not vaccinated it’s a different thing – I’m not bringing you in. I think the market for Cam was small a year ago. People are talking about the Dallas Cowboys today, like they need another disruption. I don’t know, I would not bring in an unvaccinated quarterback. I’m not a ‘mandate guy’, if it was an unvaccinated outside linebacker and you were great I would probably consider it, but quarterback?? Sixty touches a game, most valuable guy in the locker room? I can’t do it. It’s one thing if you decided that and I’m stuck with you, it’s another thing if you’re on the market. It’s a hard pass for me.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he doesn’t think the free-agent market for Cam Newton will be very lively, as Colin believes Cam’s status as an unvaccinated player could ultimately sway teams from bringing in an individual who could become a high risk to violate the league’s strict protocols, which Newton has already portrayed himself as.
Check out the audio above as Colin details why quarterback is the one position on the field that holds such an immense responsibility to be fully vaccinated.
