Cowboys | Tyron Smith dealing with family problems
Dallas Cowboys OT Tyron Smith agreed to pay his parents in installments after signing a four-year, $12.5 million deal in 2011 after being drafted ninth overall in the first round. Smith's family harassed him for more financial gain after he helped them out, and physical threats lead Smith to file a protective order against his parents last summer to keep them from coming in contact with him. Smith's family, including his brother and sisters, continually demanded money from him and also took more than $1 million from him. "There was money missing, but I just don't know where it went," Smith said. "There were times I would check my statements and it wouldn't make sense and I hadn't authorized it at all. I just felt betrayed and I was like, 'Who can I trust?'"
