Plaxico Burress reportedly in danger of having home foreclosed on
Plaxico Burress has had some problems with money since he retired from playing in the NFL, and it appears the financial troubles are still ongoing for the former New York Giants receiver.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, a home Burress and his wife Tiffany own in New Jersey is currently in foreclosure. The couple bought the 5,500 square foot home back in 2005, and they have not made any mortgage payments since July 2017. The bank is now demanding that Plaxico and Tiffany pay off the $700,000 they owe on the $1.5 million home or the property will be seized.
As TMZ notes, Burress made nearly $30 million during his 12 seasons in the NFL. He is currently working as a coaching intern with the Arizona Cardinals, though it’s unclear how much the team is paying him.
Three years ago, Burress was facing jail time over some serious state income tax issues. He ended up paying that money back and avoided further penalty. Prior to that, the 40-year-old had his driver’s license suspended in 2013 after he refused to pay a judgment that stemmed from a car accident. The Super Bowl champion has a long history with bouncing checks, being a terrible driver and failing to pay taxes and fines.
