Von Ryan is being charged with bank fraud and, if convicted, could end up with 30 months in prison and a $1 million fine. Although Von Ryan was a subcontractor and not a team employee, according to a team statement posted to Philly.com, NFL players with the Philadelphia Eagles might have to be more careful about leaving sensitive financial information lying around in the future.
