Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders is filing to divorce wife Lauren Sanders after 11 years of marriage, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Sanders filed Friday in Oakland County Circuit Court, citing no reason other than a breakdown in marital relations. He is seeking joint custody of his three boys -- ages 10, 8 and 4 -- and is prepared to pay child support as recommended by state guidelines. Lauren Sanders works as a weekend anchor at WDIV-TV Channel 4 in Detroit. The two were married in November 2000.
