NFL Star Pacman Jones to Lose Home to Foreclosure

June 23, 2008 No Comments »


Another day, another celebrity foreclosure, the latest involving former Tennessee Titans cornerback Mr. Adam “Pacman” Jones.

The currently suspended Dallas Cowboys player reportedly fell behind on mortgage payments tied to his $1.5 million 30-acre home in Nashville, Tennessee, which will be sold in a foreclosure sale this Friday.

Jones bought the home in 2006 for $1.575 million from mortgage lender U.S. Bank, per The Tennessean, and later tried to sell the home for $1.8 million in early May, an endeavor that ultimately proved unsuccessful.

It’s unclear how much he owes on the sprawling property, but the Tennessean said he originally took out two mortgages, one for $1.26 million and a second mortgage valued at $157,500.

The ex-NFL star, whose eligibility is currently in the hands of commissioner Roger Goodell, has seen his share of problems off the field, including a half dozen arrests that led to his suspension last April.

In related news, Jones has also told reporters that he no longer wants to be known as “Pacman”, but rather Adam Jones or simply Mr. Jones, looking to shed the negative connotation tied to his former nickname.

Jones joins a slew of other celebrities who current face or have faced foreclosure, including Ed McMahon, Michael Jackson, Vin Baker, Carlos Boozer, and Jose Canseco.
