NFL Report: Colts’ CB Isaiah Rodgers to potentially face lifetime ban from league due to rules violations

The Colts cornerback Isaiah Rodgers dropped the ball to include his name in the book of gambling, though the player did not hesitate to seek an apology immediately, it seems a wild good chase for him.

NFL imposed very strict rules regarding gambling, and anyone involved would face severe consequences, consisting of a fine, being cut from the roster, and expulsion from the NFL for life, however, some players still didn’t pay any heed, ruining their NFL careers in the process.

Why does Isaiah Rodgers potentially face a lifetime ban?

The Colts cornerback may have forgotten that the league is in charge of his position today after spending four years playing in this prestigious league, and he made a grave error by engaging in gambling and breaking its gambling policy.

Five NFL players were suspended as a result of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s “zero tolerance” gambling policy, including four Lions players and one Commanders player. Pro Football Talk claims that the commissioner might make a different choice this time and impose the equivalent of the death penalty under the gambling laws.

Let’s have a look at the policy for which the player is expected to get the highest punishment ever according to the report.

“Apparent or alleged violations of this Policy by NFL Personnel will continue to be decided by the Commissioner or his designee on a case-by-case basis. Violations of this Policy constitute conduct detrimental to the League and will subject the involved club and/or person(s) to appropriate disciplinary action by the Commissioner. Disciplinary action may include, without limitation, severe penalties up to and including a fine, termination of employment and/or banishment from the NFL for life.” 

NFL is investigating more players for gambling violations

By suspending five players already the NFL showed how seriously they want to uproot the exercise from the league for good. The Colts cornerback, as a consequence, was caught red-handed, yet there also may have been some big name behind the scene and the authority is on the hunt for them.

Gambling has turned into a way for people to become wealthy overnight, and there is plenty of room for this practice with casinos popping up all over. For those who want to participate, the process is also made simpler by the option to keep transactions private. The NFL should instead concentrate on the origin of the gambling, as trying to isolate the name without searching for the root will be fruitless.

Even though Rodgers requested an apology and is hopeful for his potential return to the league again, the 25-year-old might be going to the person through whom Goodell wishes to teach a lesson to other players, preventing them from even considering gambling in a nightmare.
