Haven’t heard this name in a while.

Correll Buckhalter is one of 10 former NFL players charged by the U.S. Justice Department today on allegations of healthcare fraud.

From The Washington Post:

The Justice Department charged 10 former NFL players, including a group of former Washington Redskins that includes running back Clinton Portis and cornerback Carlos Rogers, with defrauding a health care program for retired players of nearly $4 million, according to court documents. The Department also said it intends to file charges against two other players as well.

After an FBI investigation, the Justice Department filed charges Thursday morning in the Eastern District of Kentucky against Robert McCune, John Eubanks, Tamarick Vanover, Ceandris Brown, James Butler, Frederick Bennett, Correll Buckhalter, Etric Pruitt, Portis and Rogers.

The article goes on to say the players submitted false claims to the Gene Upshaw NFL Player Health Reimbursement Account Plan “for reimbursement for medical equipment — such as hyperbaric chambers, cryotherapy machines and ultrasound machines — costing between $40,000 and $50,000.” Others were allegedly recruited with promises of kickbacks and bribes.

Buckhalter’s name does not appear again in the story beyond that snippet I shared. He played for the Eagles from 2001 to 2008, first sharing the load with Duce Staley then operating part of the three-headed monster that included Brian Westbrook. He played two more seasons with the Denver Broncos and finished his NFL career with 2,900 rushing yards and 27 total touchdowns.
