[Sporting News] How Can an NFL Player Go Broke?

One of my recent Quora answers, to the question "How Can an NFL Player Go Broke?", is now featured on The Sporting News. It should be elsewhere shortly, so I'll update this post or make other posts as necessary.

I touch on:

  • Medical issues, which affect NFL players disproportionately
  • Taxes and fees, which eat up a surprisingly high amount of pro athletes' salaries
  • Diversity in career path NFL players have outside of their football careers
