Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills was involved in an arm-wrestling competition in Las Vegas, according to USA Today.

And this is apparently an issue.

While the NFL is moving a franchise to Las Vegas, league rules currently prohibit NFL players from engaging in any promotional events or activities in the Sin City.

OK, then.

According to the report, nearly three dozen NFL players were in Las Vegas this week to participate in the event, which is scheduled to air on CBS and also reportedly will donate money to charity.

“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 NFL’s executive vice president for communications and public affairs, told USA TODAY Sports. “No one sought pre-approval.”

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the participating players “violated NFL policy and will be fined.”

The Pro Football Arm Wrestling Championship took place at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

No word on how Stills fared as an arm-wrestler.
