Former NFL Wide Receiver Reche Caldwell, 41, Shot and Killed Outside His Tampa Home

In 2014, Reche was arrested for drug possession and intent to sell, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He was sentenced to 27 months in prison and three years probation.

Reche told ESPN in 2016, while he was still in prison, that he took responsibility for his illegal actions. "I'm not gonna blame football or concussions like everybody else for my mistakes," he said. "I don't blame my education or my hometown or my family. I have a great family. I had a great childhood. I grew up in a great place. This is about losing my way, being around bad people and making bad choices, and that's all on me."

In January, Reche pleaded guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, along with several other former NFL players, who filed nearly $4 million in false insurance claims over a span of 18 months, according to ESPN.

He was scheduled to be sentenced this month.
