Former Redskins player, Clinton Portis, is facing up to 20 years in prison for allegedly defrauding the NFL.
"United States Department of Justice officials say Portis and 9 other ex-NFL players developed a scheme back in 2017 to make money off of the Gene Upshaw NFL Player Plan.
According to court docs obtained byTMZ Sports, some of the names involved in the scam included Robert McCune,John Eubanks,Tamarick Vanover,Ceandris Brown,James Butler,Fredrick Bennett and Etric Pruitt.
Officials say the scheme wasn't too complicated ... Portis and the former players allegedly made up fake claims, submitted them to the plan (which is designed to help retired players pay for medical bills) and were reimbursed."
They also went on to say that two other ex-NFL stars, former Eagles RB Correll Buckhalter and another former Redskin, Carlos Rogers, are also involved in the alleged scheme.
