Andre Rison, if you follow the NFL you’re probably familiar with the antics of Andre Rison (1990’s) both on and off the field – he was one of the original bad boys.
He had a $17 million dollar NFL contract and his relationship with Lisa Lopes of TLC fame, it appeared Rison had it all.
However, it wasn’t long before it all came crashing down. Lisa Lopes died in a car accident, and Rison’s NFL career came to an end early in 2000.
Life after football has been rough for Rison. In an ESPN documentary, he admitted spending $1 million on jewelry alone, and he owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support.
He might have been known as a cocky, brash player who wasn’t afraid to speak his mind, but that was then and, as they say, this is now.
