Modern Day 'Longest Yard': The NFL All-Prison Fantasy Team

by Julian Sonny

The NFL is an entirely different beast these days. Guys are getting out of control, overstepping their boundaries and getting into crazy trouble, seemingly every day. While criminals in pro sports aren't anything new, it seems like guys these days are especially dumb when it comes to getting caught.

It's not really their fault though. These guys are just all meatheads who got paid a little too well, too soon and these antics are a result of it. You'd be lying if you said you wouldn't be doing some of the same things.

They are human after all and are bound to slip up every now and then. However, the thing with them is that they just also tend to be twice the size of your average American. This is the modern day "Longest Yard." NFL's All-Prison Fantasy Team.
