"The NFLs gambling policy, of course, prohibits players from appearing at casinos as part of promotional events. According to the NFL, players participating in this specific event without pre-approval are in violation of the gambling policy and subject to discipline.

Had we been asked in advance if this was acceptable, we would have indicated that it was in direct violation of the gambling policy, Joe Lockhart, the NFLs executive vice president for communications and public affairs, told USA TODAY Sports. No one sought pre-approval.
