The National Football League has suspended Arizona Cardinals defensive back Josh Shaw for at least the rest of the current season for betting on NFL games.
Late Friday afternoon, the traditional dumping ground for unfavorable corporate developments, the NFL announced that Cardinals cornerback Josh Shaw had been “suspended indefinitely through at least the conclusion of the 2020 season for betting on NFL games on multiple occasions.”
Shaw, who is currently on injured reserve, hasn’t played a snap this season. The downtime apparently left him with too much time on his hands and he decided to spend it (and an undisclosed amount of cash) wagering on the outcome of games.
The method by which Shaw placed his wagers wasn’t specified, but Arizona has yet to join the growing list of states that have authorized wagering since the US Supreme Court struck down the federal sports betting ban in May 2018.
