Arizona Cardinals defensive back Josh Shaw was suspended by the NFL for the remainder of the 2019 and at least the entire 2020 season on Friday, for betting on NFL games.

It is unclear whether or not Shaw bet on Cardinals games, and he had not played a down in the 2019 season, as he was placed on injured reserve before Arizona’s season-opening tie with the Detroit Lions.

Here is the statement from the NFL.

Shaw was signed to Florida in 2010 by Urban Meyer, but only stayed in Gainesville for two seasons before transferring to USC. Shaw was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and is in his first season with the Cardinals.
