Report: Burress' mansion in foreclosure
Life in prison is rough on Plaxico Burress, and it’s going to be tough on him when he gets out.
How so? Burress’ Florida mansion is being foreclosed on reports the New York Post. The former star wide receiver has vowed to return to the game when he gets out in an interview CBS will run today, but he’ll need a new pad when he does. Or at least a new offseason home.
The report states that he owes more than $250,000 to creditors. Burress and his wife Tiffany purchased the home on Lighthouse Point in Broward County for $4 million in 2005. With the economy and real-estate market hitting the skids, the property is now valued at $2.3 million, according to the report. Hey, there’s one reason to stop making payments, right? Well, wrong.
The Giants dumped Burress and his $35 million, five-year contract in 2008 and before the season was over he shot himself in the leg at a Manhattan night club. The unregistered weapon landed him in the pen. That right there cost him the bulk of the money in the contract, yet another reason to not carry an unregistered handgun.
