    Plaxico Burress, Wife Sued For $3.3 Million In South Florida Foreclosure Case

    By Brian Bandell
    South Florida Business Journal

    Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress(notes) may not have a home to return to in Florida, once he emerges from prison.

    The jailed Super Bowl hero and his wife, Tiffany, were hit with a $3.3 million foreclosure lawsuit on Jan. 22 from Deutsche Bank National Trust Co., as a trustee for a mortgage-backed securities fund, according to Broward County Circuit Court records.

    It concerns the $2.9 million mortgage Burress signed in 2005, covering his home in Lighthouse Point, just north of Fort Lauderdale.



    He bought the 6,872-square-foot waterfront home, at 2249 N.E. 26th St., for $4 million in 2005. Two years later, he moved his official residence from New Jersey to Florida.

    Burress caught the winning touchdown pass in the final minute of Super Bowl XLII to lead the Giants past the previously unbeaten New England Patriots. New York rewarded him in 2008 with a two-year contract extension at $7 million a year.

    All of that unraveled in November 2008, when Burress entered the Latin Quarter nightclub in Manhattan with a gun tucked in his pants. The unlicensed gun slid down his leg and blasted a bullet in his thigh. The Giants released him after the season. more
    Talk about penny wise, pound foolish... the moral of our story is if you want to carry a gun, spend a few bucks on a decent holster! Of course, if you're bringing a gun into a club and you're not a cop, you already proved you aren't the sharpest tool in the shed.

    Burris joins a long list of extraordinary athletes that couldn't be stopped by their opponents, so they did the job themselves.
