MIami Football Scandal Includes Two Current Eagles Players

The Miami football scandal that has rocked college football includes current and former Philadelphia Eagles

The Miami football scandal that has rocked college football went to another level last night, when Yahoo! Sports published an exclusive expose on the dealings on convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro. Shapiro detailed to Charles Robinson scores of serious NCAA violations he was engaged in with many different Miami football players from 2002 to 2010. In addition to cash payments for making certain plays, Shapiro also gave the players cars, prostitutes, meals, took them strip clubs, gave them jewelry and in once instance even paid for an abortion when a stripper he paid to have sex with members of the team got pregnant.

It's a bombshell of pretty epic proportions and it happens that two current and one former Eagle are named in the scandal. First is current backup RB Graig Cooper, who the Eagles signed as an undrafted free agent this offseason.
