A Chicago Bears backup quarterback has called for an audible on his Lincoln Park condo, but is staying in the Windy City, according to his realtor.

Trevor Siemian and his wife, Bo, sold their two-bedroom unit for $680,000 in September, according to the Chicago Tribune.

“They loved the location and they love Lincoln Park, but they desperately need more space,” listing agent Victoria Rezin of Coldwell Banker said to the Tribune.

Sieman, who is 30 years old, played at Northwestern University and signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Bears in March. Sieman has played for several NFL teams, including the 2015 Denver Broncos, who won the Super Bowl. Sieman sat second on the Bears quarterback depthchart behind Justin Fields, but was placed on injured reserve for the rest of the season earlier this month.

He and his wife paid $660,000 for the condo in 2019 when it was new construction. Amenities include a private balcony, a mudroom and heated floors in the main bedroom. They listed the home for $15,000 more than the selling price in July, before the property went under contract a month later.

Lincoln Park has been a hot spot for luxury sales and listings this year. Earlier this week, a Lincoln Park mansion that was listed on Wednesday hit the market with a pending offer on the table. The home at 1848 N Howe St. is listed for $4.9 million.

The priciest Lincoln Park single-family listing belongs to a $9.5 million home with ties to hedge funder and former Illinois resident Ken Griffin. The list price is a drop from when it last sold for $10 million on July 12, which marked the neighborhood’s priciest deal so far this year, according to Cook County records. It was respectively bought and sold by limited liability companies Mohawk Partners II and Mohawk Partners. The home has long been the residence of Anne Dias, the philanthropist, investor and ex-wife of Griffin.
