In the new world of legal sports betting, NFL clobbers an obscure cornerback By John L. Smith, The Nevada Independent December 9, 2019 at 9:01 pm Until recently even avid NFL fans would have been hard-pressed to give you an in-depth read on Josh Shaw. Although in his fifth season in the league, the cornerback from USC hadn’t made much of an impression in the professional ranks. Selected in the fourth round by Cincinnati in the 2015 draft, he seldom started. He bounced from Cincinnati to Kansas City, and then on to Tampa Bay. This season found him in Arizona, squatting on the Cardinals’ injured reserve list. Shaw vaulted from professional obscurity to undeniable notoriety last month after it was discovered he’d placed a three-team parlay at Caesars Palace on NFL games in violation of league rules. He suddenly found himself on the front page of the sports section without intercepting a single pass. Which is a good thing since he’d only accomplished that feat once in his career.
