It seemed Irving Fryar had a pretty solid life. The first wide receiver ever taken No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft, Fryar retired in 2000 (he played with the Eagles from 1996-1998). After a brief stint at Action News, Fryar founded the New Jerusalem House of God in South Jersey. He was head football coach at Robbinsville High School in Mercer County. He even showed up at Eagles practices and get hugs from Jeffrey Lurie!
Then, last year the feds accused Fryar and his mother of mortgage fraud. Tuesday, the pair were arraigned, charged with conspiring to defraud five banks. The state says Fryar and his mother took out $690,000 in equity loans from five banks over a six day period — without telling each bank of the other loans. According to prosecutors, Fryar received $200,000.
