LT says 'I had no discipline'
Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor says he still makes a lot of bad decisions.
In an interview with Showtime's "Inside the NFL," that aired Wednesday night, the former Giants linebacker says he's struggled with self-discipline.
"Nowadays, you guys are on 24-hours-a-day so everything that happens is actually exploited a little bit more or is blown up a little bit more and more people know about it," Taylor said in remarks released by Showtime. "So now you have to really discipline yourself. For years, I had no discipline. I could do what I wanted to do as far as playing in New York."
Taylor was sentenced in March to six years' probation under a deal to plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute.
