The Athletic is not naming the player at this time because the investigation is ongoing. The player currently under investigation was not a prominent member of the 2022 team. He has yet to be interviewed by the league’s investigator. The player’s agent declined to comment when reached by The Athletic, as did spokespersons for the NFL, NFLPA and the Lions.

As the NFL continues to navigate the complex landscape of sports gambling, it becomes increasingly apparent that no player is exempt from scrutiny. The investigation into the fifth player from the 2022 Detroit Lions emphasizes the league's dedication to enforcing rules and punishing violations, regardless of a player's prominence or team standing.

This ongoing probe serves as a reminder to all NFL players and teams that the league remains committed to upholding the principles of fairness and integrity. It sends a clear message that engaging in gambling-related activities can have severe consequences and underscores the league's firm stance against compromising the integrity of the game.
