How many NFL Players go broke after they retire

Andre Rison

In 2007, Andre Rison declared bankruptcy. Child support was the straw that broke the camel's back, but in the end, he fell victim to the money-gobbling twin monsters that have spelled doom for so many other athletes: indulgence and flash. 

Clinton Porti

One of them was Portis, who lost $3.1 million when they convinced him to invest in an Alabama casino that went bust.  

Vince Young

In 2014, just one year after the Packers decided that Young's troubles were greater than his remaining potential, he filed for bankruptcy. His assets combined for as little as $500,001 and his debts totaled as much as $10 million. 

Raghib (Rocket) Ismail

As early as 1991 -- the year he was drafted as a college junior -- Ismail "invested" $300,000 in a Hard Rock Cafe knockoff restaurant called the Rock N' Roll Cafe. He never saw any of the money again and never found out what became of the restaurant. 

Dermontti Dawson

The 2008 housing crash hit him hard, and he was soon the target of several legal judgments, including one for $3.4 million and another for $1.7 million. 

Chris McAlister

It's not clear where all the money went or exactly how much he lost, but the court records came from child-support hearings where McAlister was attempting to get relief from his $11,000-a-month paternity obligations.
