Daunte Culpepper forfeits home worth millions

Posted · Add Comment

Former Pro Bowl quarterback Daunte Culpepper surrendered a nearly 10,000-square foot home in Broward County, Fla., to SunTrust Bank to avoid foreclosure.

Culpepper, a former star for the Minnesota Vikings, bought the $3.6 million home after he joined the Miami Dolphins in 2006, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The bank agreed to drop a lawsuit against Culpepper earlier this month. The bank claimed he owed $3 million.

Injuries curtailed Culpepper’s career and he last played in the United Football League in 2010. He also spent time with the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions.
