Unvaccinated Millionaire Fired from Job

Patriots release Cam Newton; Mac Jones will start Week 1



Belichick immediately put Newton forward as the team’s starting quarterback following Jones’s selection and reiterated Newton’s position as the starter as late as last week, saying that someone — Jones — would have to outplay the veteran to earn the job.

But he continually declined to name Newton the starter, fueling speculation that Jones had fully overtaken the incumbent. What’s more, Newton’s release comes on the heels of a frustrating absence due to COVID protocols which revealed the former MVP was unvaccinated.

His release, therefore, can be read a few ways. Jones outplayed him to take the job, for one thing. Also, the team now may not have to worry about its starting quarterback being unvaccinated. (Jones has not confirmed that he is vaccinated but has made comments being favorable toward vaccination. He also has never been masked at the practice facility — a sign that a player is unvaccinated.)

3. I Think The Proofreader Missed Something

Jones has not confirmed that he is vaccinated but has made comments being favorable toward vaccination. He also has never been masked at the practice facility — a sign that a player is unvaccinated

The unvaxxed players get to go maskless? I think not.

5. Unvaccinated people need not apply



I'm not a New England Patriots fan, by any stretch. But Belicheck needs to stand tough, or this won't mean anything.
