The National Football League has strict rules against player gambling, and those rules were recently broken. And now, the NFL is dropping the hammer.

Three NFL players - Quintez Cephus and C.J. Moore of the Detroit Lions and Shaka Toney of the Washington Commanders - have been suspended for an indefinite period of time for having gambled on games during the 2022 season. What's more, Lions players Stanley Berryhill and Jameson Williams have been banned for the first six games of the upcoming 2023 NFL season for the same infraction. 

“A league review uncovered no evidence indicating any inside information was used or that any game was compromised in any way,” a league statement said.

"As a result of an NFL investigation, it came to our attention that a few of our players had violated the league's gambling policy," Detroit general manager Brad Holmes said in a statement. "These players exhibited decision making that is not consistent with our organizational values and violates league rules. We have made the decision to part ways with Quintez and C.J. immediately. We are disappointed by the decision making demonstrated by Stanley and Jameson and will work with both players to ensure they understand the severity of these violations and have clarity on the league rules moving forward."

Use better judgement in the future, guys!
