Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins deleted a tweet Thursday afternoon shortly after posting it that said he would “question” his future in the NFL if it meant not getting the COVID-19 vaccine could potentially hurt his team’s chances in 2021.

Hopkins’ tweet came in the wake of an NFL memo that described ramifications for teams that had COVID outbreaks during the 2021 season that decimate position groups or entire rosters. The NFL said a forfeit will be declared for a postponed game that can’t be rescheduled within the 18-game framework of the season and is caused by an outbreak among unvaccinated players of one team. In addition, if a forfeit occurs, players on both teams would lose their game checks.

The NFL’s new policy caused ripples throughout the league, with players reacting to the news on social media and at training camps.

Hopkins’ now-deleted tweet read: “Never thought I would say this, But being in a position to hurt my team because I don’t want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the @nfl.” After deleting his initial tweet, he tweeted: “Freedom?”

He later tweeted, however, that he has “9 more years left in me.”
