Five years in Prison is never fun, but the former first round pick in the 1984 NFL Draft will be spending that amount of time in a prison cell.  Irving Fryar the former Dolphins, Eagles and Patriots wide out that went to 5 Pro Bowls was sentenced this week by a Judge.

Fryar was sentenced today to five years for mortgage fraud. He and his mother were convicted of conspiracy and theft by deception for fraudulently using the same property while applying for multiple mortgages. His mother got three years’ probation.

“The fact that Fryar had the means to succeed and do good things and instead chose this criminal path makes his actions all the more reprehensible,” acting New Jersey Attorney General John Hoffman said in a statement Friday.
