Baltimore Ravens linebacker and Miami native Elvis Dumervil paid $1.7 million for a Coral Gables home, The Real Deal has learned.

Dumervil acquired the three-bedroom house at 5555 Oakwood Lane in a transaction recorded on Thursday, according to Miami-Dade County records. He did not obtain financing for the purchase. The 3,550-square-foot home was originally constructed in 1947 within the city’s Snapper Creek Oaks neighborhood.

Barbara Namon sold the property to Dumervil. County records do not indicate what she paid for the house.

In April, Dumervil sold a Parkland residence for $2.2 million. He paid $2.3 million for the house nine months before selling it.

An eight-year National Football League veteran, Dumervil grew up in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood. After attending the University of Louisville, the linebacker spent seven seasons with the Denver Broncos before joining the Ravens for the 2013 season.
