Denver Broncos player LaMont Jordan was sued by The Mirage Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday over allegations Jordan owes the casino $20,000 in gambling debts.

The suit, filed in Clark County District Court, says that on June 26-27, 2008, Jordan signed six check-like negotiable gaming debt instruments. They were for $1,000, $4,000, $6,000 and three more for $3,000 apiece.

But when The Mirage presented them to Bank of America, three were returned marked "unable to locate account" and three more were returned marked "not sufficient funds."

The Mirage maintains Jordan has failed to pay the $20,000 and interest accruing at 18 percent per year.

Efforts to reach Jordan through the Broncos office were unsuccessful Thursday.

Attached to the lawsuit is a 2006 credit application signed by Jordan identifying his occupation as a football player for the Oakland Raiders and listing his hometown as Bowie, Md.

The Maryland graduate played for the New York Jets from 2001 to 2004 and then for the Raiders for three seasons ending in 2007. He played for the New England Patriots last year and this season is on the Broncos' roster.
