On Friday, the NFL announced that Daryl Washington, Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker who’s very famous with pay per head sportsbooks, will be suspended for the 2014 season after the player again violated the league’s substance abuse policy.
Price per head services saw that Washington, who was apologetic, and whose suspension begins with immediate effect, said in a statement that it was due to marijuana and that he is “committed to making changes in my life that will allow me to return to the NFL as soon as possible.”
Last season, the player missed four games for a past violation. He also faced another suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after being arrested in May 2013 on two counts of aggravated assault following a confrontation with his former girlfriend, in an incident that shocked many fans and pay per head sportsbooks.
In March, the player pleaded guilty to those charges and in April he was sentenced to one year of supervised probation.
“It’s completely unacceptable that Daryl has once again put us in this position,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said. “We all know what the consequences are and will deal with them.
“From a personal standpoint, our hope is that this suspension will give Daryl the opportunity to accept the necessary help and guidance to get his life back on track, and we will certainly support him however we can.”
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that In 12 games last season, the player was third on the team with 3 sacks, 2 interceptions and 81 tackles (59 solo).
“As it pertains to our team, our approach is the same as it’s always been: next man up,” Keim said. “… One player’s absence is another’s opportunity. That approach has served us well in the past and we will rely on it now.”
Old news to us, new news to y’all. My team and I continue to stay focus. Working every day and building chemistry and a winning attitude.

Washington, who in 2011 and 2012 was the team leader in tackles, will lose $2.9 million in salary because of the suspension.
The Cardinals exercised a $10 million option in March to keep the player on the roster. Then, Washington got $5 million and pay per head sportsbooks learned that the deal calls for Washington to receive the other $5 million next March.
