New York Jets

New York Jets coach busted for gambling and has been suspended for a year by the NFL

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin has been suspended by the NFL for an entire year. This comes a day after he was busted for the NFL’s gambling policy.

According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, there is no indication that Austin bet on NFL games. But placing wagers on other sporting events would still qualify as a violation of the league’s gambling policy for personnel.

I am sure Austin will appeal the suspension, but this is a huge loss for the Jets and star rookie Garrett WIlson who has been playing like the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Austin entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth and made the Pro Bowl for the Cowboys in his career. He is joining Calvin Ridley for being suspended for gambling.
