15. Erik Naposki, New England Patriots & Indianapolis Colts:
Linebacker Naposki played two seasons with the Patriots and one with the Colts. But it was his heinous crime he’s remembered for most, unfortunately.
His arrest came long after the alleged crime. On May 21, 2009, Naposki was arrested in Connecticut for a murder dating back to December 1994 in Newport Beach, CA. He was arrested for murder of a man named Bill McLaughlin. The murder was the center of a plot so a woman named Nanette Johnston, McLaughlin’s girlfriend, could disgustingly cash in on his life insurance policy. Naposki was romantically linked to Johnston.
Naposki was convicted of the murder in July 2011 and sentenced to life in prison in August 2012.
