    Jimmy Smith gets 6 years in the slammer



    No, not OUR Jimmy Smith!

    Remember when this guy was a serious thorn in the Ravens side.. Guess he couldn't handle regular life after a stellar NFL career.

    Wow. What a shame.

    He was one of the best in the league during the late 90's through the mid 2000's.

    Wow indeed. From top of the league to in jail. Another sad story of life as an NFL player.

    One of many from that original Jags team to crash and burn after retirement. Brunell is bankrupt and owes millions to creditors and the only job he could get is a HS coaching job near Jacksonville and occasionally fronting for a local Ford dealership.

    Unbelievable. Hope he gets things straight when he gets out.

    These guys are so blessed and some of them just can't live life as a "regular" person. What a shame.

    I remember that one game when he put up 295 yards against us.

    After seeing story after story about these NFL players after they retire, you almost hope your kid/nephew never becomes an NFL player. Too bad these players can't get accustomed to the real world after being a superstar.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    I think i was at that game because I sure remember Brunell to Smith for some big plays. Sad to hear about Smith now...

    Smith had drug problems long before retirement. If anything it was the NFL that kept this from happening to him a lot earlier in life.

    Very sad. He was a heck of a player and very tough. Hopefully he sorts himself out somehow.

    While most of us think having a lot of money is a blessing, if you have an addiction or other issue(s) it can be a real curse.
