Teams across the entire NFL did a miraculous job in 2020 to persevere playing through the COVID pandemic. Pulling off an entire regular season and playoffs while crowning a Super Bowl champion was an incredible feat by the league. Still, the entire season was unlike any we've seen before.

With the availabilities of COVID vaccinations, teams are heading into the 2021 campaign with hopes of a close-to-normal season. With that in mind, Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane has taken a serious approach to this vaccine.

On a recent appearance with WGR Sports Radio, Beane offered an ultimatum to his players. He discussed cutting unvaccinated players if it meant going through a normal offseason. "It’d be an advantage," Beane said.

It's a pretty bold statement from the Bills front office. Of course, this statement was said as purely hypothetical. Would Beane threaten to cut his star quarterback Josh Allen (again, hypothetical) if he refused to be vaccinated? We're not sure, but it's worth keeping an eye on.

The Bills are looking to take another step forward next year. Last season, Buffalo finished with 13 wins and the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs. As it stands, the Bills own the third-best odds to win the 2021 Super Bowl at +1200, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
