Former Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryar has been indicted for conspiring to steal upwards of $690,000 from banks using home equity loans. Fryar didn't work alone as his 72 year-old mother was in on the fraud scam as well - she is also being indicted.
Fryar and his mother reportedly worked over a six day period in 2009 to obtain five home equity loans by deceiving banks. The current Robbinsville High School football coach is also ironically working as a pastor at a church he founded in Burlington County.
Fryar, 51, played with the Eagles from 1996-1998 where he had 222 receptions and 3,067 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns. He was the first overall pick by the New England Patriots in the 1984 draft and was a five-time Pro Bowler, including two of his three years in Philadelphia. In his 17-year career, he caught 851 passes for 12,785 yards and 84 touchdowns.
