He’s a borderline NFL player, currently on injured reserve, who probably isn’t making a ton of money, but who probably also knows more about the teams and the games that the rest of us.
There’s no evidence he tried to influence games, or did anything more than most of us have done in Vegas at some point, but it is against the rules of the NFL, for sure.
He was just a guy trying to make some extra by betting on a sport he knows a lot about. Despite the clear rules against it.
Will this punishment deter others? I do think that’s exactly what Goodell is hoping, just as much as I think he’s not the only player doing it.
