Jevon Kearse, the former NFL All-Pro who retired three years ago, is now in foreclosure on a $5.25 million loan on his Pompano Beach, Fla. home.
Kearse played 11 seasons for the Titans and Eagles from 1999 to 2009. He bought a 6,000-square-foot home in Pompano Beach for $6.05 million in 2004, and signed a $5.25 million mortgage two years later.
However, that loan is in foreclosure. Deutsche Bank filed suit on the mortgage on Dec. 19. The IRS has also filed a tax lien against Kearse for $432,015 over his 2010 income.
Jevon Kearse's home.After leaving the University of Florida, where he acquired the nickname "The Freak," Kearse signed with the Tennessee Titans and became one of their signature players. He was the defensive Rookie of the Year in 1999, the year Tennessee reached the Super Bowl.
In 2004, the year he purchased the house, Kearse signed with the Eagles, inking a $65 million, eight-year contract which included a $16 million signing bonus. But the Eagles cut him loose three years early, waiving him in 2008. Kearse then signed with Tennessee again for two years and $6 million, but could not catch on with a team after the 2009 season.
