“These dedicated health care workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others and we continue to be grateful to them,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in an official announcement. “We hope, in a small way, that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes. This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccinations and proper health practices, including wearing masks in public places.”
