Back in 2011, Tyron Smith signed a four-year, $12.5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys. And any well-off person can attest to the fact that the more money you make, more family members will come out of the woodwork. Over time, Smith could no longer simply say "no" to his overbearing siblings and needed to call the police for help.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Smith called 911 two days ago after a couple family members showed up at his house to “harass and torment” him “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain.” In addition to calling the cops on Tuesday, the Cowboys offensive lineman filed a protective order this past summer against his mother, Frankie Pinkney, and stepfather, Roy Pinkney, because they keep wanting more money from him even though he reportedly gave his siblings a large portion of his rookie contract. Oh, and did we forget to mention that it's believed one of Smith’s family members were removed from training camp this year?
As they say, "friends come and go, but family is forever," just don't tell that to Smith. That may be his worst nightmare.
