Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and his wife Lauren paid $4.3 million for a home on Southeast 17 Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.

The couple tried to make the cash purchase quietly through a trust fund in Santa Monica, California, which listed the quarterback’s father-in-law, John Ufer, as trustee.

Tannehill, the starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins since 2012, and his wife closed on the purchase of the Fort Lauderdale home on March 4 at a price $200,000 below the asking price.

Multiple listing service records show the Tannehills signed a purchase contract on February 16, one day after the Fort Lauderdale home was listed for sale for $4.5 million.

The one-story home at 420 Southeast 17 Avenue spans 5,400 square feet and has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms. The property includes a separate one-bedroom guesthouse with an exercise room. [Gossip Extra] — Mike Seemuth
