Former Auburn standout Kris Frost collects large sum after injury policy kicks in
Entering his senior season at Auburn, many thought Kris Frost would be taking his game from college Saturdays to NFL Sundays but that never happened due in large part to nagging injuries. Thankfully for the former Auburn defender, he took out an insurance policy before the end of his college career.
Following his four-year carer on the Plains, which resulted in 246 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, three interceptions and three and a half sacks, Frost never got back to 100 percent during the pre-draft activities leading up to 2016 NFL Draft. While his NFL.com draft profile pegged him as a late-round selection, Frost was not selected in the 2016 NFL Draft.
His insurance must have covered this exact situation as Frost has just been paid out $1.5 million after never getting his NFL career going, according to Darren Rovell of the Action Network.
According to Rovell, Frost was projected by some as a second-round selection. Frost has never suited up in an NFL game following the end of his college career.
