Phillips, 34, was once one of the nation's top college football players at Nebraska. The St. Louis Rams released him for insubordination in 1997.

He went on to play for the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers, and spent time in NFL Europe and the Canadian Football League.

What's that? Some people need to be in jail, you say? Yeah, we agree.
