Duante Culpepper who once had a promising career in the NFL, has lost a Florida home he owned to a bank in a foreclosure case.
According to Broward County court records, Culpepper, surrendered the nearly 10,000-square-foot home in April to SunTrust Bank in lieu of foreclosure. The bank dropped its lawsuit against the ex-NFL quarterback earlier this month.
Culpepper bought the house for about $3.6 million when he was signed by the Miami Dolphins in 2006. The bank cited $3 million in debt in court papers. Records show Culpepper still owns another home in the suburb of Weston.
Besides the Dolphins, Culpepper played for the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions. He last played in 2010 for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.
The foreclosure was first reported by the South Florida Business Journal.
