Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer did an amazing thing Tuesday. Something he almost never does. He told the truth. Meyer revealed that cutting players due to their vaccination status against COVID-19 was, "certainly in consideration."

Meanwhile, all the way up the eastern seaboard, Cam Newton was released from New England the same day. One can't help but wonder if his vaccination status played into the team's decision to part ways, especially after COVID protocols kept him away from his squad for five days last week.

Charles Robinson is joined by Yahoo's Dan Wetzel to talk about the NFL's tenuous situation as teams finalized their 53-man rosters this week. Are coaches taking vaccine status into consideration? Absolutely. Are they being forced to lie about it? You bet.

Charles & Dan also discuss the New Orleans Saints being forced away from their home state for the month of September due to Hurricane Ida, the latest on potential Deshaun Watson trade suitors, the Bishop Sycamore debacle and more.
