Bernard Pollard provides for his future after the NFL

I am willing to bet that very few sports fans are aware that the athletes they worship frequently lose the millions of dollars they made during their careers.

The most famous case in history of an athlete who died virtually penniless is the great prize fighter, Joe Louis. Toward the end of his life he was forced to be a ‘greeter’ at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas to pay taxes he owed the government.…
