Former Nebraska and Pro Bowl receiver Irving Fryar and his mother were charged with conspiring to use fraudulent home equity loans to steal $690,000, New Jersey acting Attorney General John Hoffman said.

Fryar, 51, now a high school football coach, and his mother, Allene McGhee, 72, were indicted by a Trenton grand jury on charges of conspiracy and theft by deception, Hoffman said in a statement. They allegedly deceived five banks in obtaining loans in December 2009, each of which was secured by McGhee's house.
