Sports Celebrities and their New Properties

Training camps around the NFL opened for business this week, with just a mere 41 days of agony remaining before the2013 season officially kicks off. In a nod to the pigskin, goes full gridiron in the latest Sunday Sports Page. From Brian Cushing to Troy Aikman, read on for the latest in NFL real estate and football player homes.

Greg Jennings’ Last Lambeau Leap (Top)
Greg Jennings may have left Green Bay for division rival Minnesota, but there is still a part of him that remains at Lambeau Field – well, sort of near Lambeau Field. Jennings’ future with the Packers was called into question earlier this year when he listed his De Pere, WI home for $525,000. Although he would eventually sign with the Vikings this offseason, as Jennings prepares to break camp with his new team, his former Green Bay home remains on the market with the same asking price.

Alex Smith Kisses Bay Area Goodbye

Former No. 1 overall pick Alex Smith is now the No. 1 man in Kansas City. The quarterback was traded by the 49ers to the Chiefs this offseason, and now he’s looking to part ways with his home in Los Gatos, CA. Located roughly 30 minutes away from San Francisco’s new venue, Levi’s Stadium, the property offers a comfortable 5,650 square feet of living space, including 1,200 square feet in the master suite alone. Other perks of the $3.5 million property include a theater wet bar, a wood-paneled kitchen and a pool.

Brian Cushing Slashes Price

The Houston Texans expect big return from a fully healthy Brian Cushing next season. The same cannot be said forthe linebacker and his waterfront home. When Cushing listed his Missouri City, TX property in January of 2011, the All-Pro was asking $1.4 million. Since then, he has chopped $100,000 off his asking price in a bid to sell the 7,000-square-foot home with five bedrooms and five baths. Built in 2007, Cushing’s digs features an art media room with a wet bar, a top tier security system with surveillance cameras and a pool.

Elvis Dumervil Selling in Castle Rock
Did you know Elvis Dumervil likes tropical fish? Neither did I! After signing with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason, the talented pass rusher is looking to part ways with his Castle Rock, CO property, which just so happens to feature at least four built-in fish tanks by my count – one in the kitchen, one in the living room, one running down a hallway and yet another in the theater room. Dumervil is asking a cool $2.7 million for the 6,200-square-foot home.

Keyshawn Johnson’s Big Chop

Apparently Keyshawn Johnson’s mega-mansion in Calabasas is proving to be a tough sell. After listing the massive 11,746-square-foot estate in February for $10.5 million, the former Pro Bowl wide receiver-turned-NFL analyst has chopped a cool $2 million off his asking price. Those questioning the credentials of Keyshawn’s mansion need not. Johnson’s mansion is strong in the amenities with a sunken basketball court, resort-style pool and a game room.

Former No.1 NFL Draft Pick Selling Home

Ki-Jana Carter, the 1st-overall pick in the 1995 NFL Draft, is looking to part ways with his Plantation, FL estate. The former Penn State great, whose pro career never quite played out the way many expected, is seeking $1.77 million for the 9,477-square-foot spread, which has some impressive sports memorabilia hanging from the rafters.

Troy Aikman Goes Deep in Big-D

Troy Aikman may not be a general manager, but he has pulled off quite a trade in recent days. The legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback, who was previously offering one of the highest-priced pieces of Highland Park real estate, has apparently chosen to pick up another mansion in the same affluent neighborhood. Aikman shelled out $4.6 million for his new 10,662-square-foot home, which is slightly smaller and comparatively much less expensive than the $24 million manse he posted in 2011.
