The Arizona Republic reports that the indictment accused Rison of failing to pay more than $10,000 between August 2008 to August 2011.

The indictment says the due date for his payments had passed about three years ago. Court documents say his 13-year-old child lived in Phoenix at the time the payments were due.

A federal official says Rison also is expected to continue monthly child support payments of close to $2,350.

Rison played 13 seasons in the NFL with seven teams. Most of his best seasons came with the Atlanta Falcons. He made five Pro Bowl appearances.
