Irving Fryar Indicted On Conspiracy Chargers

Five-time Pro Bowl receiver Irving Fryar has been indicted on charges of conspiracy in theft for a mortgage fraud scam, according to the state’s Attorney General.

Fryar — who played for the Patriots, Dolphins, Eagles and Redskins from 1984-2000 — was more than solid with New England, making between 54 and 88 catches every season from 1990-97. His 851 career receptions ranks 18th on the all-time list, and his 12,785 career receiving yards ranks 15th.

New Jersey prosecutors say Fryar, now 51, and his mother, Allene McGhee, conspired to steal almost $700,000 when McGhee took out five home equity loans on her house within a six-day time period in 2009. Acting attorney general John Hoffman stated that “it is disappointing that someone with an illustrious career in professional sports who now is a minister and coach in the community is charged with this crime, but he must face justice like anyone else.”
