Cowboys Released Joseph Randle Over Sports Gambling

It seems football or his inability to focus on it was the least of Joseph Randle’s problems. 

Randle’s was reportedly released after the Cowboys learned that the running back had been betting on sports, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Early Monday morning, Randle was arrested for the fourth time over the last 17 months in Irving on an outstanding speeding warrant out of Coppell. Randle’s continued run-ins with the law and his involvement in sports gambling appear to have put his career in jeopardy.

On Nov. 3, a combination of issues led the Cowboys to release Randle. In addition to showing signs of mental instability, he had been involved in placing wagers on sporting events during the 2015 season, sources said.

“All of that became apparent to us right during the season,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week from a Senior Bowl practice in Mobile, Ala. “Not before the season. It became real acute, a combination of things. Some issues … became more apparent.”

Jones was asked if any evidence showed that Randle bet on any NFL games.

“At this time, no,” Jones said.

Jones said there’s no evidence that shows Randle could have compromised any Cowboys games last season.

“Not to my knowledge, not in any way,” Jones added.

Randle has reportedly denied the allegations, but such a label has likely ended his NFL career.
