Former NFL tight end Jeremy Shockey, who helped the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints claim the Lombardi Trophy, has listed his home in Miami Beach, FL, for sale for $3 million.
The 35-year-old's penthouse suite sits atop the 35-story Waverly condominium complex, which is located at the western edge of Miami Beach. The 2,582-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms and features amazing views of downtown Miami.
Shockey rose to fame at the University of Miami, where he was named a first-team All-American player and won a national championship with the Hurricanes in 2001. He was named Rookie of the Year and an All-Pro in his first season in New York City in 2002, but he was injured late in the season during the Giants' miraculous run to the Super Bowl XLII victory in 2007.
After bouncing over to New Orleans and catching a touchdown in the Saints' win in Super Bowl XLIV, he drifted to Carolina for a single season and hung it up after the 2011 season.
As a patriotic American -- check out his bald eagle and American flag tattoo as proof -- he must love the current real estate market. Shockey bought the penthouse in 2005 for $1.45 million, so he stands to double his investment if he can snag the asking price.
Reid Heidenry of Sotheby's International Realty is the listing agent.
