Mark Cuban is offering to buy an NFL player stock in a leading pharmaceutical company.
Cuban’s response came after Beasley is saying he will get vaccinated if he can profit from it.
I’ll tell you what Cole. You get vaccinated and promote vaccination on all your social, I’ll buy your wife a share of Pfizer stock. It pays a 3.78% dividend. That way she is getting a percentage of Pfizer’s earnings. Deal ? https://t.co/gMmMHt97ro

Pfizer, which is one of the manufacturers of a COVID-19 vaccine, pays a dividend of 3.9% based on Tuesday’s share price of $41.05.
Why It’s Important: Beasley offered to get vaccinated if he can profit, which was in response to ProFootballTalk suggesting the NFL and NFL Players Association should compromise and stop testing for marijuana if players get vaccinated.
Beasley said in June he would rather retire than get vaccinated, saying he will live his life as he wants and not give in to pressure from the NFL and NFLPA.
“I may die of Covid, but I’d rather die actually living,” Beasley tweeted at the time.
