Sean Jones Would Like A Get Out Of Jail Free Card
It seems like everything that former NFL defensive lineman Sean Jones touches turns to crap. First, he was a member of the Los Angeles Raiders. They eventually moved to Oakland, and then got stuck with a troublesome Randy Moss, Jerry Porter, and no quarterback. So he moves on to the Houston Oilers. They move to Tennessee, get some cool uniforms, but have little success. Last, he played with the Green Bay Packers…and they are just not the same team as they used to be.
But Sean Jones thought that maybe if he became a sports agent, he would not be able to bring bad fortune to others. Wrong again. Jones should have never gotten into anything relating to finance. In 2003, Jones was suspended for a couple of years after he violated NFLPA rules when handling his client’s (Ebenezer Ekuban’s) finances. He was banned by the NFLPA from representing any players until 2005. In another instance, Jones was forced to pay $396,000 to former Houston Oiler Cris Dishman after another financial investment went bad.
Sean Jones did not become a bad decision maker in 2003. He had experience dating back to 1999. When that man knows a bad financial decision, he goes full steam ahead. This time, the FBI got involved. Yesterday, Jones was arrested (along with 4 others) for being involved in a bank fraud scheme that would have scored the group $42 million+ [Former NFL star Sean Jones indicted on fraud charges]. He could be in jail for 30 years and pay a fine of up to $1 million based on that decision. One less NFLPA registered agent…
