NFL Suspends Jameson Williams, Four Others for Gambling


NFL Offseason – The NFL is suspending five players for violations of the gambling policy set in place by the league, per reports from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Involved were Detroit Lions’ wide receivers Jameson Williams, Stanley Berryhill, and Quintez Cephus, along with safety CJ Moore. Defensive end Shaka Toney of the Washington Commanders was also suspended. Cephus, Toney, and Moore are all suspended indefinitely and for a minimum of one year. Williams and Berryhill are suspended for just six games.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cephus and Moore have been released by the Lions after they were suspended by the NFL.

The players suspended for a year are said to have been found gambling on NFL games, while those suspended for six games were placing bets on college games but while inside NFL facilities. The NFL released a statement on the suspensions, saying “A league review uncovered no evidence indicating any inside information was used or that any game was compromised in any way.”
