Troy Polamalu played for the Pittsburgh Steelers all throughout his NFL career as a strong safety, which accounts for a total of 11 years. His relationship with the team was deemed ‘made in heaven’ from the very beginning, and he has kept his gorgeous digs from those days to remind him of the good times.
The team rewarded him with a hefty paycheck, which he used to buy a brand new mansion, located in La Jolla, California. It is estimated to be worth $4.75 million.
Antonio Gates – Poway, Estimated $2.5 Million
Selected into the Pro-Bowl 8 times, and a 5-time All-Pro, the NFL has expanded Antonio Gates’ interests and views - and purchasing power. So much so that the tight end for the Los Angeles Chargers decided he needs a bigger place to live, in comparison to his old residence.
His $2.5-million estate in Poway, California is 6,800 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, an oversized kitchen, an entertainment room, a library, two offices, and a basketball court.
Joe Montana – San Francisco’s Marina District, Estimated $2.7 Million
The real estate business is supposedly a safe way to invest your money, as real property value is almost always expected to grow in time. NFL legend Joe Montana thought so, too, and was quick to purchase large properties when the opportunity presented itself. However, reselling them turned out poorly. His Napa property suffered a steep drop, for example, from $50 million to $35 million.
Joe Montana remains optimistic, and continues to invest in properties, like one in the San Francisco’s Marina District that is estimated at $2.7 million. It isn’t for sale, but when he decides to, he hopes to double its original value.
Charles Woodson – Orlando, Estimated $3.6 Million
The Oakland Raiders and the Green Bay Packers were both lucky enough to have Charles Woodson play for them as their cornerback and safety. Woodson was a vital part in his former teams’ success, and had amassed a huge fortune in the process.
Considered to be one of the most decorated football players in the sport, Woodson is enjoying his downtime thanks to his lavish 8,000 square foot home, that sits on three acres of land in California. His $3.65 million mansion features 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, a pool, a gym, a home cinema, and a basketball court.
Chad Pennington – Southwest Ranches, Estimated $3.3 Million
Chad Pennington acquired his large estate in the Southwest Ranches way back in 2008, and it looks like he’s going to be staying there for a long time. This purchase dates back to when he was still a quarterback for the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins, and earning millions.
Home is where the heart is, and Pennington seems to have found true love in his mansion, estimated to be worth $3.3 million. It includes 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, a movie theater, a barbecue area, a swimming pool, and a garage that can hold four cars.
