The Las Vegas Raiders need to figure it out. According to Yahoo NFL reporter Charles Robinson, the Raiders have been fined $500,000. Additionally, Jon Gruden has been fined $150,000, and the Raiders will lose their 2021 sixth round draft pick for repeatedly violating COVID protocol.
Sources: #NFL will fine the Las Vegas #Raiders $500,000 & coach Jon Gruden $150,000 and strip the team of a 6th round draft pick for COVID-19 protocol violations related to OT Trent Brown’s positive test in late October. Escalated fines/pick were due to being a “repeat offender”.

The NFL was bound to start cracking down harder if teams continue to neglect the protocols in place. This isn’t the first time the Raiders have been warned, either. Jon Gruden has been fined before for improperly wearing his mask.
After the Tennessee Titans breached protocol and held a secret practice while their team had an outbreak, Roger Goodell hasn’t been shy about condemning any team that doesn’t obey the COVID rules. Maybe the Raiders will finally learn their lesson.
Just wear a mask, it’s not that hard.
