    Bernie Kosar Files For Bankruptcy

    [size=13pt]Bernie Kosar Files For Bankruptcy[/size]

    Posted by Aaron Wilson on June 19, 2009, 7:14 p.m. EDT

    Bernie Kosar, the former Cleveland Browns’ star quarterback, declared bankruptcy today.

    It was the Chapter 11 variety.

    According to Patrick Danner of the Miami Herald, Kosar filed a petition that revealed he owes creditors a total of $19.5 million, including almost $1.5 million to the Browns and $3 million to his ex-wife, Babette.

    During a radio interview today with Tony Rizzo of WKNR in Cleveland, per Steve King of the Orange & Brown Report, the 45-year-old former NFL star discussed his financial problems.

    “I’ve tried to be generous with family, friends and ex-teammates,” Kosar said. “I’ve tried to help people out and let people manage things for me. I’m glad I was able to help those people and to help charities.

    “But I’ve got four great kids and now I have to focus on them. The money comes and goes. But God has blessed me with the ability to make it.”

    Poor guy. At least he didn't waste all his money on strippers... Well, he could of, but at least the whole football nation did not have to hear about it. *cough pacman cough*
