PITTSBURGH, PA (WCMH) – Former Buckeye and Pittsburgh Steeler Will Allen is furious with ESPN after the network erroneously used his picture in connection with another player’s fraud conviction.

A former New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots cornerback, also named Will Allen, pleaded guilty Monday to running a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme involving fraudulent loans to professional athletes.

A screenshot of ESPN’s original tweet shows a photo of the wrong Will Allen.

Former Buckeye Will Allen spent Tuesday afternoon sending ESPN photos showing him involved in the community, each with the line “this is who I am!! Not a criminal!!”

ESPN’s original tweet has been deleted. Espn later tweeted that they used the wrong image and noted that they replaced the image.
