The SportsXchange

Former NFL defensive lineman Byron Frisch was one of four people charged with orchestrating a $50 million insurance fraud scam.

Frisch and his alleged partners are charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in San Diego, the Union-Tribune newspaper reported.

Authorities allege false information was used to gather more than $50 million in life insurance policies. The policies were written to unqualified individuals who had no intent of maintaining the policy, allowing the conspirators to collect the death benefit of elderly individuals who believed they were getting free life insurance.

Frisch, 36, played for the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.
