Erxleben, an ex-placekicker for the Saints and Lions, faces count of money laundering and security fraud. The maximum sentence for these charges? Over 100 years in jail!

That's worse than actually being stuck on the Lions!

In 1999, Erxleben was sentenced to seven years behind bars after robbing other investors of $36 million. He stills owes $28 million in restitution from that incident.
