After being out of the NFL for nearly two years, three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Chris McAlister is broke and living with his parents.
McAlister, a first-round draft pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 1999, told TMZ that he hasn't had any income since since he last played in 2009 and is in the middle of a child support war with his ex-wife. He recently filed court documents in an effort to get his $11,000 monthly obligation of child support lowered.
"I live in my parents' home," McAlister said. "My parents provide me with my basic living expenses as I do not have the funds to do so."
However, according to a Ravens message board, McAlister denies ever talking to TMZ.
McAlister was a large part of the Ravens' championship team in 2000, and signed a seven-year, $55 million contract with the team in 2004. After being consistently injured and his production declined, the Ravens released him in 2009.
In November of the 2009 season, he was signed by the New Orleans Saints, but was released in December, just two months before the Saints won the Super Bowl. Since then, he has been unemployed.
