Jevon Kearse Faces Foreclosure On Florida Home
Via Biz Journals
Three years after hanging up his shoulder pads for good, former NFL All-Pro defensive end Jevon Kearse is facing foreclosure on his Pompano Beach home.
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.
That loan is now in foreclosure after Deutsche Bank filed a lawsuit on Dec. 19. Kearse’s attorney, Marc A. Marra in Weston, couldn’t be reached for comment.
Kearse started his career in 1999 with the Tennessee 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.
He rejoined the Titans in 2008 with a $6 million two-year deal. But he couldn’t find a new team in 2010.
In November, the IRS filed a tax lien against Kearse for $432,015 based on his 2010 income.
Just another muhfuggin statistic.
