NFL officials are looking for ways to make sure players are aware of the rules as gambling becomes a bigger problem throughout the league.
In recent months, the NFL has suspended a number of players and is reportedly looking into others. One of the famous athletes that has been punishment for gambling is Calvin Ridley. He cautioned his teammates from breaking the league’s gambling rules.
Six “key rules” regarding wagering were introduced by the league earlier this week in an effort to strengthen its stance against athletes participating in sports gambling. However, Eric DeCosta, general manager of the Baltimore Ravens, made a decision to go a step further by directly appealing to the team’s roster of players.
