Life for a veteran NFL player following his career typically seems like one that should be laid out thanks to the amount of earnings that he accrued from his playing days. But it's not always that simple for some.
For Clinton Portis, it appears that he has fallen on hard times after being hit with a foreclosure lawsuit over a condo he owns in Miami, according to Brian Bandell of the South Florida Business Journal.
Michael McCann of Sports Illustrated also reported the news via his Twitter account:
JPMorgan Chase Bank filed the lawsuit back on Dec. 12 against both Portis and his mother. The former Miami Hurricanes and Washington Redskins star running back owned the 2,070-square foot condo that, according to Bandell, was likely an investment property.
The mortgage on the condo was for $512,000 from back in 2004, the first year that Portis spent with the Redskins.
This isn't the first time that Portis has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Portis was pulled over recently by law enforcement while he was conducting an interview with radio personalities, according to USA Today:
Portis hasn't played in the NFL since 2010 but has been recently doing the rounds on different networks to try to gain traction as a football analyst. He was also quoted back on Jan. 9 talking about Robert Griffin III needing to focus on football, according to Chris Lingebach of CBS Sports.
Most recently, he's been on the ACC Network to talk about the BCS National Championship Game and was on NFL Network to talk about pro football, as its official Twitter account reports:
The former Redskins and Denver Broncos player was also part of a lawsuit against the NFL over concussions that was settled in August of 2013, with the players receiving $765 million to split.
The same man that electrified Miami fans during its last national championship win is also set to join the Hurricanes' Hall of Fame on April 10. While more details haven't come out about the lawsuit, they will be added to this story when they are announced.
