The South Florida Business Journal reports that former Eagle Jevon Kearse has lost the Florida home he bought after joining the Eagles in 2004:
Known as “the freak” for his amazing athletic ability while at the University of Florida, Kearse bought the 6,064-square-foot home along the ocean at 2301 Bay Drive for $6.05 million in 2004. Two years later, he signed a $5.25 million mortgage on it.
Kearse started his career in 1999 with theTennessee Titans. In 2004, the year he bought the house, he signed an eight-year $65 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles that included a $16 million signing bonus. He helped the Eagles reach the Super Bowl that year. However, the Eagles released him in early 2008 and voided the final three years of his contract.
It’s been a rough week for former Philly athletes—Allen Iverson also fell prey to foreclosure, you’ll recall, on his $2.5 million Georgia mansion.
