The 5-time Pro-Bowler went on to add that winning is of the utmost importance for any team.
Therefore, every single player should be in line and do everything they can to avoid missing time:
"Our job as athletes is to try to remove any reason of not winning the Super Bowl," Irvin added. "It's why I condition, so fatigue isn't the reason that I lose the Super Bowl. It's why I go over plays a million times, so that a mistake is not the reason why I lose the Super Bowl. You have to try to mitigate any issue that can cost you a game or a Super Bowl. And COVID is one of them. You go get vaccinated to try to mitigate it as best you can."
"Now, you can still get it after you get vaccinated, but it's a different percentage chance of you getting it. And I need you to get that different percentage chance. I'm so hot for Amari Cooper not being on that," he concluded.
