As the fourth overall pick in the 1990 NFL draft, Keith McCants was a disappointment on the field. His post-NFL life has been significantly more disappointing.
McCants was arrested for drug possession in Mobile, Alabama on Sunday — at least the 12th time McCants has been arrested on drug charges, according to TMZ.
The ESPN documentary Broke, which profiled athletes who went bankrupt after their playing careers, featured McCants revealing that he viewed becoming a millionaire at age 22 as a huge burden. McCants said he thought having money led him to become an addict and created problems within his family.
McCants was cut by the Buccaneers after three seasons, then spent a year and a half with the Houston Oilers and another year and a half with the Arizona Cardinals before his career came to an end at age 27.
