Former Cowboys RB Reportedly Bet on Sports

This week it was revealed that former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle reportedly bet on sports, which is rumored to have played a part in him being waived by the Cowboys in November.

Randle has been arrested four times within the last 18 months, with his most recent arrest being this week when Randle was picked up for an outstanding speeding ticket. Those arrests weren't enough to get Randle cut though, but once word got out on the back's gambling habits he was quickly released.

Randle was reportedly caught betting on various sporting events during the season, which is against league rules. Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, players are prohibited from betting on any pro, amateur, or college sporting events.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly said that some issues Randle was struggling with became apparent during the 2015 season, and the back strangely pulled himself out of an October 25th loss to the New York Giants after running for 24 yards.

Randle is 24 years old and hails from Kansas. He played college football at Oklahoma State where he starred, scoring 43 touchdowns across three seasons.

Currently, there is no firm evidence that Randle bet on sports, which would likely lead to a lengthy suspension or ban from the game, although more information is likely to drip out as time goes on.

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.

I didn't know about these NFL rules but it seems to me a bit too strict. Yes probably to bet on sporting events is not the nicest thing that professional athlete could do but still I think the NFL players are human like all of us and maybe the rules should allow some freedom to the players in that direction. But obviously the betting wasn't the only problem for Randle, it's a shame when some talents do everything they can to ruin their own career.
