Lawrence Taylor

NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was a force to be reckoned with as a linebacker with the New York Giants, but his repeated arrests for crack cocaine and other legal woes nearly cost him his legacy — and a whole lot more. He reportedly frittered away thousands to pay for his cocaine addiction in past years (he checked himself into rehab in 1986, 1995, 1998 and 1999, and says he is presently 12 years sober). In 2009, he filed for bankruptcy to avoid foreclosure on his $605,000 home in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, for which he still owed $350,000.
