New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has purchased a 6,734-square-foot home in Coral Gables for $6.05 million, according to the South Florida Business Journal. The Super Bowl champion, who also owns a condo in Miami’s Jade Residences at Brickell Bay, got a significant discount off of the $7.45 million asking price for the four-bedroom property, which sits along Biscayne Bay at 17 Tahiti Beach Island Road. He took out a $4.24 million mortgage for the purchase. The home last traded for $4.85 million in 2003. [SFBJ]
