This man is Richard Seigler, and he's a third string linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played one game last year, and had one tackle. As a practice squad player two years ago, he earned a Super Bowl ring. He played for Oregon State in college and was a fourth-round draft pick.
Oh, and, according to Las Vegas vice detectives, he was the head of a prostitution ring. He was arrested yesterday in Pittsburgh ... just after the Steelers cut him. Rough day. If only he had some way to ease all the stress and tension.
Seigler became a suspect as Metro vice officers probed a juvenile prostitution case. They found out that Seigler allegedly tried to entice a girl to work as one of his hookers, and then learned that he has other women working for him as escorts in Las Vegas.
Seigler is originally from Las Vegas, which would explain why he based his operation there rather than in Pittsburgh. (Well, that would be one of the reasons.) We are pleased to see that sports has returned to its working-class roots, requiring its players to spend their seasons out doing real manual labor, like in the good ole days.
