ESPN 30 for 30

Watched a segment on pro athletes that go broke living large and in the moment not to mention being taken advantage of by everyone around them. They gave a stat that I don't know if I heard correctly but it was something like this; the average career in the NFL is 3.5 years and 70% of the players are broke two years after their careers are finished. Below is a list of Pros that have filed for bankruptcy, some of the names might surprise you.
