Miami Dolphins defensive star Ndamukong Suh bought a waterfront home in the Coral Ridge area of Fort Lauderdale for $6.5 million.

Suh, 28, is a 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive tackle who departed the Detroit Lions this year to sign a six-year contract with the Dolphins valued at $114 million.

His new home is a 16,000-square-foot residence on the Intracoastal Waterway with a movie theater, a wine cellar, six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 100 feet of frontage on the Intracoastal.

The seller, Gary Palmer, who has spent his career in the bank card business, had bought the residence in 2009 for $750,000 and completely rebuilt it in 2013.

The $6.5 million sale price was $500,000 lower than the asking price. The deed went to a trust based in the Detroit area. [Miami Herald] – Mike Seemuth
