Three-time NFL Pro Bowler Jevon Kearse, who terrorized quarterbacks with 14.5 sacks in his rookie season in 1999, is now looking to charm a potential buyer for his home in Pompano Beach, FL, which went into foreclosure in 2013.

Now priced at $4 million, the 6,064-square-foot Mediterranean-style home has been the source of ongoing drama. Kearse, aka "The Freak," bought the home in 2004 for $6,051,500, shortly after signing a $66 million deal with the Eagles.

Kearse reportedly took out a $5.25 million mortgage on the home two years later, which he defaulted on. In 2010, the IRS filed a tax lien against him for $432,015.

However, property records show that Kearse still owns the fabulous home, so it looks like the retired defensive end has saved the mansion from foreclosure.

The three-story, six-bedroom home includes a four-car garage, gilded theater room, 5.5 luxurious bathrooms, a Renaissance-style painted ceiling in the great room, and 100 feet of water frontage off the Hillsboro Inlet.

Kearse last took the field in 2009, after a rash of injuries slowed his career trajectory.
