The Rae Carruth syndrome

Rae Carruth was a first-round draft pick wide receiver playing for the Carolina Panthers. He signed a $3.7 million, four-year deal to play for them. He even got a $1.3 million signing bonus. He was handsome, talented and a ladies man. He was living the life. He had a college sweetheart with whom he had a child and was paying child support. At some point he began dating a young lady, Cherica Adams. And when birth control isn’t practiced, we all know what happens. Cherica became pregnant, and Rae was not too thrilled about it.
