Ex-Miami Dolphins wide receiver James McKnight has fallen on hard times!
A fan fave known for his circus catches on the field, McKnight’s now playing defense against a bank trying to foreclose on his mansion near Fort Lauderdale.
And now, the 40-year-old NFL retiree’s trying to unload the homestead before it’s sold on the courthouse steps.
McKnight listed his 10,000-square-foot crib in Southwest Ranches for $2.62 million!
He bought the Mediterranean-style mansion in 2005 for $2.36 million, according to property records.
Located in the gated Landmark Ranch Estates, the house boasts six bedroom, a basketball court and his-and-hers walk-in closets the size of a master bedroom!
It also has a posh movie theater, and three acres of land.
Yearly property taxes: $35,000!
Records show McKnight, who had a $9 million-contract with the Dolphins, is being sued by Bank of New York Mellon for defaulting on two mortgages. He and wife Mikki took two loans totaling $1.9 million at the time they bought the place, a year after he retired from the league.
The house is assessed by Broward tax authorities at $1.8 million.
McKnight was acquitted, and they’ve patched things up!
McKnight, who also played for the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, didn’t respond to an email asking for comment about the foreclosure.
