Former NFL Pro Bowler

I'M DEAD BROKE

... and Living with My Parents

Former NFL bad ass Chris McAlister -- who signed a $55 MILLION contract in 2004 -- claims he's BROKE AS A JOKE and living with his parents ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

The ex-Baltimore Ravens defensive superstar has just filed new documents in his child support war with his ex-wife Marlene in the hopes of  lowering his $11,000 per month obligation.

In the docs, Chris -- a 1st round NFL draft pick in 1999 who played in the league for 10 years -- states, "I have been unemployed since 2009. I have no income."

He adds, "I live in my parent's home. My parents provide me with my basic living expenses as I do not have the funds to do so."

McAlister was a KEY member of the Ravens when they won the Super Bowl in 2000 ... and even got himself an interception during the big game.

McAlister was only married to Marlene for 13 months -- but she claims Chris ended the relationship in 2009 when she got pregnant and refused to get an abortion.

I think it's unfair that TWO people make a baby, but only ONE gets to decide what happens after thatt. However, since a family is the essential reason for getting married, I wonder why he married her if he didn't want kids with her.

NFL players can get retirement after playing in the nfl for 5 years. They receive $5,000 a month (not a ton of cash) but 60k a year someone can live on.

I understand people having to move back home with the parents or get help from the parents but this idiot has NO excuse. If you had 55 million dollars 6 years ago you should be very well off.

Besides the racist apparent in these comments, his level of broke is not a regular person's level of broke. He is only claiming he is broke to avoid paying $11K a month for Child Support. In the law firm that I worked in prior to my new career, there were a lot of lawyers, doctors, and officers who claimed they were broke(money tied up in investments) to avoid alimony and child support. Its not just black people...

Dearie, it's not that I mean to be rude, but you had all that money and you blew through it. Now you understand where the term "ni**er rich" came from.

What a moron. He and his wife are complete dip****s and the sad part is, his child is going to suffer. Of course he wanted an abortion, the guy clearly is not capable of any sort of serious responsibility. As for his wife, what kind of kid needs $11,000 a month? There are people in this country who barely make that much money working full time. ( especially after you count taxes ). He's an idiot for not saving his money, and his wife is a moron for bringing a child into this world so that they could be used as a ticket for the gravy train. How do you run out of $50 million? You could buy a brand new BMW every week for the next 20 years!!!!!!

Who needs $11,000 to care for a child. I raised 3 on my own, no support or state aid. I went to court a few times but gave up with non-compliance from the ex. I think she is very greedy.
