Quintez Cephus

  • The NFL suspended five players from the Detroit Lions and Washington Commanders for violations of the NFL gambling policy.

NEW YORK – On Friday, Ian Rapoport reported that the NFL suspended Detroit Lions CJ Moore, Jameson Williams, Quintz Cephus and Stanley Berryhill as well as Washington Commander Shaka Toney.

Three players saw the one year minimum punishment, similar to Calvin Ridley’s punishment. In less recent events, Calvin Ridley saw reinstatement after his year long punishment against the NFL’s gambling policy.

But Berryhill and Williams will see a six-game suspension. This comes as they were not betting on NFL games but were doing so in an NFL facility.

As they still have the ability to participate in off and pre-season activities, they can still make an impact. As for CJ Moore and Quintz Cephus, the Lions released them both immediately after the news broke.

“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.”

At time of writing, the Lions had +140 odds to win the NFC North, sitting as the favorites. As more comes from this, LegalSportsBetting will keep this feed fresh.
