Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis is looking to sell his South Florida home.

Davis, who abruptly retired from the NFL during a game earlier this year, will list his waterfront 4,896-square-foot house at 12750 Kapok Lane in Davie, according to an email from a Compass spokesperson. It’s hitting the market with Ben Moss and David Carrion of Compass for $1.25 million.

Davis most recently played for the Buffalo Bulls, and before that spent five seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and three seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He paid $1.1 million for the four-bedroom home in 2010, while going into his second season with the Dolphins, according to property records.

The house sits on a nearly 1-acre lot on a canal and features marble flooring, a chef’s kitchen, master bathroom with a steam shower/spa, a wine cooler, outdoor summer kitchen and resort-style pool.

Davis retired during a Bills vs. Los Angeles Chargers game in September.

A number of NFL players have recently sold their South Florida homes. In August, three-time Super Bowl winner Tajuan “Ty” Law sold his lakefront home in Plantation for $1.89 million.

Retired Dolphins player Jason Taylor sold his Weston home last year for $3.2 million after buying it in 2006 for $3.6 million.
