3-Time Super Bowl Champ15 Months Prison… for Dealing Hard Drugs

Ex-NFL running back Derek Loville was sentenced to 15 months prison on Wednesday … five months after pleading guilty to dealing ecstasy and oxycodone for an international drug ring.
Loville got his supply from an offshore gambling and drug trafficking empire known as ODOG — an operation run by his friend and former USC football player Owen Hanson, as reported by the San Diego Union Tribune.
The three-time Super Bowl champ was a small-time dealer, mainly distributing to personal friends … though one claims to have purchased 100 pills at a time from Loville.
The former 49ers starter says he didn’t know the extent of Hanson’s network until he was arrested … and has lost “all my respect” through his involvement with the crime boss.
Loville says he had an addiction to prescription pain pills before getting wrapped up with ODOG … stemming from 20-plus concussions sustained during his nine-year career with the Niners, Broncos and Seahawks.
