Bengals’ Joe Mixon rips NFLPA over updated COVID-19 protocols – Bengals Wire

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon isnt thrilled with the NFLPA after updated COVID-19 protocols went live.

Those protocols, agreed upon by the NFL and NFL Players Association, were announced this past week and include looser restrictions around facilities and with mask requirements for those players who are vaccinated against COVID-19. NFL NetworksTom Pelissero initially shared the memo.

If teams reach 85 percent of personnel vaccinated, they are free to resume normal operations similar to a typical year. Zac Taylors Bengals appeared to incentivize calling off the last two days of OTAs work this past week if the team got close enough to that percentage.

But Mixon, while sharing the list of protocols, expressed his displeasure:

He continued:

With team leaders like Jessie Bates speaking positively about how Taylor and Co. have handled this hurdle, Mixon for now sticks out as one of the players going public with his displeasure. That said, players being unhappy with how the NFLPA handles things isnt a new development, either.
