Former Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier exposed as a “liar and a cheater” by his wife.
Michelle Shazier posted and then deleted screenshots of the texts between her husband and the woman he was allegedly talking with on social media on the side. TMZ Sports and other publications screenshot the messages before Michelle Shazier eventually deleted the posts.
Shazier was with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2014 to 2019. He had 7 sacks, 7 interceptions and 299 tackles in 46 games.
On a Monday Night Football game in December 2017, Shazier suffered a devastating spinal injury that left him temporarily paralyzed from the waist down.
Shazier neved played football again and announced his retirement in September 2020. He was able to overcome the 20-percent chance that doctors told him of walking again.
Ryan and Michelle were married in 2019. He was able to dance with his wife at their wedding, 17 months after the injury. They have two children together.
Ryan has yet to address the allegations.
