(PIX11) — Former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper was forced to give up his 10,000 square foot Florida home to amend for the listed $3 million he owed to Suntrust bank, according to recent court filings.
Less than a year after he announced his retirement from the NFL, Culpepper was forced to surrender his south Florida home instead of foreclosure back in April.
Suntrust listed a debt of $3 mil. debt in court when they filed the foreclosure lawsuit. Earlier this month, they have decided to drop this lawsuit, and forgive the $3 mil. debt.
Culpepper made his name playing for the Minnesota Vikings from 1999-2006. He has also played for the Oakland Raiders and Detriot Lions before the Miami Dolphins.
A decade ago, he signed a $102 mil., 10-year deal with the Vikings that was only boosted with the $7 mil. signing bonus he received after he transferred to the Miami Dolphins in 2006.
As soon as he was signed with the Dolphins, he bought the $3.67 mil. south Florida home. Culpepper only had one unfruitful season with the Dolphins before they released him.
It seems like Culpepper will be okay though — he still owns another home in the affluent town of Weston, Fla.
