In March 2013, the South Florida Business Journal reported that former NFL quarterback, Daunte Culpepper, was facing foreclosure of his and his wife’s home, in Broward County, Florida.

It was reported that the Sun Trust Bank filled a foreclosure lawsuit against Culpepper in February 2013, and the home was officially surrendered to the bank in April 2013. Culpepper purchased the home, in 2006, for 3.67 million dollars. It is located on Berkshire Court in Landmark Ranch Estates, and measures 9,867 square-feet.

The 36 year old started out playing college football for the University of Central Florida. Other Florida colleges refused to recruit Culpepper, believing that he would not qualify to play, due to his low SAT scores. However, the University of Central Florida agreed to help him raise his scores so that he could play football as a part of their team. While playing quarterback for UCF, Culpepper broke almost all of the school’s quarterback records, many of which he still holds today.

In 1999, Culpepper was drafted into the NFL by the Minnesota Vikings. He completed a 12-year career with the Vikings and reached three Pro Bowls during this time. After suffering a knee injury, while playing for the Vikings, Culpepper was traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2006, the same year he purchased his home. Upon being released from the Dolphins at the end of his first season, Culpepper played for the Oakland Raiders and then for the Detroit Lions. In 2010, he played for the United Football League’s Sacramento Lions.

    Too bad their education is devoid of financial management and self control.

      I love all the idiots commenting that he’s broke. Do you morons not know that giving the home that is underwater back to the bank is the smarter decision?

      How do you think the rich stay rich?

      Many…MANY millionaires have done the same thing. The home may have lost a million in value and trying to keep it would be dumb.

      And for those idiots that tried to blame Obama, You do realize that million dollar homes do not meet any bailout effort….so if a deal is reached, that is from the bank only.

      But I guess you can be a openly stupid idiot and cheer that he’s broke when really you are cheering at something that actually saved Daunte millions…Yeah laugh at his success…you Idiots!

    Florida is a Homestead State which means that a Debtor can’t attach your house to collect on a Debt. However when a Bank holds a mortgage on that property that property is technically the banks until the mortgage is satisfied or paid off!
    I hope this clarifies your comment!
