Super Bowl winner Jonathan Vilma just sold his waterfront Tahiti Beach estate for $14.375 million, according to his listing agent’s Instagram account.

The former NFL linebacker and ESPN analyst sold the 8,000-square-foot, five-bedroom mansion at 17 Tahiti Beach Island Road in Coral Gables. The home hit the market last year with Douglas Elliman’s Chad Carroll for $18.5 million, which means it sold at a 22 percent discount.

Miami-Dade County has not recorded the deed, so the buyer is unknown. Carroll declined to comment.

Vilma, who played for the University of Miami Hurricanes, the New York Jets and won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints, paid $6 million for the property in 2011 and later built the house. It features floor-to-ceiling windows, tile flooring, 12-foot tall ceilings, an elevator, a chef’s kitchen, a home theater and a three-car garage. It also includes a pool with a waterfall and 161 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay.

A number of CEOs, athletes and celebrities have called the island home, including the former CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines Bob Dickinson and his ex-wife Jodie Dickinson  , Cher and basketball legend Ray Allen. The ritzy island enclave has 26 houses.
