Former National Football League linebacker Robert McCune was sentenced on Wednesday to five years in prison for orchestrating a scheme to defraud the healthcare benefits plan for retired NFL players, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

McCune, 42, joins 13 co-defendants already sentenced for their roles in a nationwide scheme involving some $3 million in false medical claims under the plan, established for retired players and their families under the NFL's 2006 collective bargaining agreement.
