Former wide receiver Reggie Rucker has agreed to let the federal government garnish $394 a month from his NFL pensions to pay back the money he stole from his nonprofit organizations, per Cleveland.com.

According to court filings, Rucker receives nearly $2,400 a month from NFL pension plans. The 69-year-old is imprisoned in Lisbon, Ohio, and will repay the $110,000 he owes to the Cleveland Peacemakers Alliance.

Rucker played with the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and New England Patriots before playing for seven seasons with the Cleveland Browns, from 1975 to 1981. He recorded 447 receptions for 7,065 yards and 44 touchdowns during his career.
