MIAMI — Former University of Miami football star Jeremy Shockey, who retired from the NFL in 2011 with two Super Bowl titles, just unloaded his fancy Miami Beach condo after two years of steady price decreases.
The former tight end, 37, whose professional career saw him play for the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers, made about $1 million on the 36th floor condo at the Waverly at South Beach, a building on the west side of the Miami Beach, across the water from Star Island.
Shockey, who was known for his unkempt long hair and a mouth that often got him into trouble as well as repeated injuries, just agreed to sell the 2,500-square-foot, three-bedroom condo at 1330 West Ave. for $2.4 million, according to The Real Deal.
At one point last year, Shockey had the crib for sale for $3 million.
Miami-Dade County records show he bought it in July 2005 for $1.45 million. At the time, Shockey plied his trade for the Giant.
The real estate website also reports the buyer is Italian developer Claudio Benedetti, who developed Miami Beach’s troubled Artecity Park condo complex.
Shockey, by the way, isn’t going anywhere.
Real estate records show he bought a single-family house on Prairie Avenue in the Mid Golf neighborhood of Miami Beach in December 2015.
He paid $1.75 million for the 2,700-square-foot home.
