Downfall: Cocaine and hookers.
Lawrence Taylor didn't let anything stop him from partaking in the illegal cocktail of cocaine and prostitutes. Paying for intercourse, excessive partying, and nose candy ended up costing the linebacker a loss of $50 million.
In 2009, Taylor was busted for bedding a 16-year-old girl, and charged with felony third-degree statutory rape, plus third-degree patronization, for allegedly paying the girl $300 for her services.
Old habits die hard.
