This of course is not the first player to be caught up in sports gambling. Calvin Ridley was previously suspended for a year for betting on games involving the Falcons.
Four Lions players were suspended in April for violating the league’s gambling policy, which included Jameson Williams.
If this Colts player did in fact bet on Colts games, the consequences will be dire. Hopefully the player in question didn’t have any action on the Colts not blowing a 30-point lead to the Vikings last year, or maybe he had action on the Vikings …
