Titans’ Nicholas Petit-Frere suspended six games in NFL gambling crackdown

The picture is getting clearer on the NFL’s upcoming suspensions for players violating the league’s gambling policy.

Tennessee Titans starting right tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere is being suspended for six games, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, for betting on non-NFL games while at the team facility.

Petit-Frere is adamant he did not bet on any NFL games, but admitted that he placed “NOT NFL related” bets that were “legal under Tennessee law.”

Petit-Frere apologized for his actions in a statement released Thursday.

“I want to apologize to my family, coaches, teammates and the Titans fans,” he wrote. “I have always strived in every stage of my life to follow the rules. Even after attending a league presentation, I was unaware about the specifics around placing bets from a team facility.

“I will do everything in my power to help the team during training camp and will be prepared when I return to the roster during the season.”

The Ohio State product was expected to be the starting right tackle for Tennessee in 2023 after a rookie season in which he started 16 games.

Additionally, the Titans lost the other part of the right side of their line from last season — right guard Nate Davis — after he signed in free agency with the Chicago Bears.

More suspensions are expected to come for players who violated the league’s gambling policy, with Schefter reporting earlier this week that a “handful” of players will be punished.

Already, several Lions players (including first-round pick Jameson Williams), Commanders defensive end Shaka Toney and Colts cornerback Isaiah Rodgers have been implicated.
