The four players are among the highest-profile holdouts against the league’s strict COVID-19 protocols, which restrict the travel and requires the testing of unvaccinated players. According to the players’ union, 90% are vaccinated.
These rules make it difficult to predict the availability of players for the upcoming season.
The Texas Republican deleted his Twitter by citing a common liberal argument within the context of abortion.
“#YourBodyYourChoice,” he said.
