The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that former Miami Dolphins receiver Irving Fryar and his 72-year-old mother have been indicted for conspiring to steal more than $690,000 by deceiving several banks into granting them home equity loans.
Fryar played with the Dolphins from 1993-95, averaging 1,063 receiving yards during those seasons.
He famously caught a fourth-quarter, fourth-down bomb to give Dan Marino a win over the New England Patriots in the 1994 season opener, Marino's first game after rupturing his Achilles' tendon in Cleveland in 1993.
In college as a member of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, he also had a notorious drop of a sure touchdown pass in the Miami Hurricanes' 31-30 Orange Bowl win that gave them their first national championship. The drop in the end zone came with 1:05 left. Nebraska did go on to score a touchdown, only to miss on a two-point conversion try with 48 seconds left, sealing the result.
