NFL player suspended for betting on games

2 December 2019

Josh Shaw, a defensive back for the Arizona Cardinals National Football League (NFL) franchise, has been handed an indefinite suspension after he was found to have wagered on a number of games during the current season.

Shaw, who has not played this campaign due to a shoulder injury, will serve a suspension until at least the end of the 2020 season. He will not be able to apply for reinstatement until February 2021.

NFL rules and regulations state that NFL players, coaches or other personnel at a team are not permitted to place bets on league games. Reports state that Shaw placed the bets in Las Vegas, as sports betting is not currently legal in Arizona.

The NFL said Shaw placed bets on games on multiple this season, but did not find any evidence that he received inside information nor that any of the games were compromised.
