Clinton Portis and five others charged with defrauding the NFL’s retirement fund

Clinton Portis
Former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis and several others have been charged in ripping off the NFL’s retirement program.

Six former NFL players were charged in a superseding indictment for their alleged roles in a nationwide fraud case. The players were reportedly defrauding the healthcare benefits program for retired NFL football players.

According to court documents, the group of defendants defrauded the NFL’s player health Reimbursement account plan for nearly $4 million.

The charges are related to falsifying medical bills for unused or unnecessary medical procedures between 2017 and 2018.

There were actually seven players in the indictment. Clinton Portis, Robert McCune, Anthony Montgomery, Antwan Odom, Darrell Reid and Tamarick Vanover were the players charged, but Reche Caldwell was also in the indictment but he was recently shot and killed in Tampa, Florida.

All six defendants face charges of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud.

Other former NFL players have already been charged in connection with the scheme. Those players are Correll Buckhalter, James Butler, Joseph Horn, Etric Pruitt, Ceandris Brown, and John Eubanks.
