Ex-Dolphin Daunte Culpepper Loses His Florida Home in Foreclosure Court

Daunte Culpepper, one of several players who have been part of the Dolphins' never ending post-Dan Marino quarterback carousel, has lost his South Florida home in foreclosure court.

According to the AP, Culpepper bought the nearly 10,000 square foot Broward County home back in 2006 while he was still playing for the Dolphins. He plopped down $3.6 million for it, but the bank claimed he still owed $3 million.

Culpepper surrendered the home to SunTrust Bank back in April to avoid foreclosure, and now the bank has dropped their suit against the former QB.

Though, Culpepper won't be homeless when he visits the area. Court records show he still owns another home out in Weston.

Culpepper last played in the NFL back in 2009 for the Detroit Lions. He last played for a UFL team in 2010, but is currently unsigned and is all but officially retired.
