Philadelphia Eagles veteran offensive lineman Todd Herremans reportedly had $225,000 stolen from his bank account by a parking lot attendant.

According to a report by The Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Wood and Jimmy Kempski, 37-year-old Robert Von Ryan, who watched the players' cars, withdrew funds from Herremans' account between 2009 and 2012.

Von Ryan, who has been charged with bank fraud, was not employed by the team. He was a subcontractor.

The report provided more specifics on the federal investigation:

According to federal prosecutors, Von Ryan entered the vehicle of an Eagle identified as "T.H." From the car, he took documents that contained the player’s checking account number. ... Using the number, Von Ryan [transferred] $225,034.52 from HerremansUBS checking account to his own, said U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger.  

If the attendant is convicted, he faces up to 30 years in jail and a $1 million fine for his transgressions.

Herremans has been a key contributor on the Eagles' offensive line, starting at least 15 games in five of his previous eight seasons.    

The 2005 fourth-round pick out of Saginaw Valley State may have had to worry about funds getting stolen from him in the midst of his rookie contract, but now he's enjoying the rich lifestyle many NFL players have.

Last March, Philadelphia inked Herremans to a three-year extension that runs through 2016, and he is guaranteed $11 million under the deal, per Spotrac.com.

In November of last year's tumultuous campaign, though, Herremans went on injured reserve with an ankle injury after playing in only eight games.

With his versatility to play tackle and guard, it's no wonder the Eagles wanted to lock him up long term. Now, they will just have to be a little more careful with who has access to the players' cars.

Philadelphia is 3-4 and in second place in the NFC East. The Eagles host the New York Giants in Week 8.
