Cardinals DB Josh Shaw Drops Appeal Of Gambling Suspension


David Purdum of ESPN reports that Cardinals DB Josh Shaw is no longer appealing his suspension for violating the NFL’s gambling policy and will be suspended through at least the 2020 season.

The Cardinals officially placed Shaw on the suspended list Thursday.

Shaw’s suspension stems from betting on NFL games on “multiple occasions” this season.

Shaw reportedly placed a three-team parlay wager at a Las Vegas casino, which led to an NFL investigation. Sources tell ESPN that Shaw bet a few thousand dollars on the second halves of three Week 10 NFL games, including on the Buccaneers, who were playing the Cardinals.

The NFL and the Cardinals were unaware of Shaw’s bet and the league reportedly did not find any evidence that he used inside information to place his bets.

Shaw, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. The Bengals waived him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason last year and he later reverted to the team’s injured reserve list.

Cincinnati cut Shaw loose soon after and he eventually signed on with the Chiefs. He later had a brief stint with the Buccaneers before the Cardinals signed him to a contract this past March. 

The Cardinals later placed Shaw on injured reserve. 

In 2018, Shaw appeared in eight games for the Buccaneers and Chiefs and recorded 11 tackles and a fumble recovery.
