Joey Porter, a former linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals, is facing foreclosure on his Broward County ranch home, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

Boca Raton-based 1st United Bank slapped Porter with a foreclosure suit over a $2.8 million mortgage on his 2.3-acre home at at 16900 Stratford Court in the Landmark Ranch Estates development.

Porter purchased the 10,600-square-foot home for $4 million in 2007, and by 2011, the neighborhood’s homeowners association had filed a lien against Porter claiming nonpayment on dues. [SFBJ]Christopher Cameron
