10 NFL Star Homes You Can Own

Michael Strahan's Hermosa Beach townhouse
Asking price: $1.8 million.  

It used to be Strahan sacking people for losses back when the league's single-season sacks king was leading the New York Giants' defense. Now that Strahan's about to take a seat next to Kelly Ripa, assume Regis Philbin's morning talk show duties and marry Eddie Murphy's ex-wife Nicole, he's the one feeling the pressure.  

Strahan's parting with a 2,560-square-food home in Hermosa Beach, Calif., for nearly $400,000 less than he paid for it back in 2005. The lucky fan who takes over possession after Strahan's loss will get three bedrooms, three and a half baths, two master suites, two large living spaces, a gourmet kitchen, an elevator and rooftop deck. They'll also get Strahan's custom touches, including hardwood, marble and slate flooring, granite counters and high-end appliances. It's a bit of a hit for Strahan, but a good pickup for savvy fans seeking his view of the shoreline.  

Junior Seau's Oceanside home
Asking price: $2.3 million  

Even longtime San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots fans might have trouble splurging for this football souvenir from one of the league's most formidable linebackers. This 2,238-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom California palace comes with a huge outdoor balcony overlooking the ocean, a fireplace and an antique stove in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, it also comes with some baggage. This is where the 43-year-old Seau was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in May. It's where fans held vigils in his memory and mourned a retired star gone too soon. That's a lot for a buyer to take on, but fans looking to celebrate the man, his achievements and his philanthropic legacy might consider investing in the home and view he left behind.  

Terry Bradshaw's Oklahoma ranch
Asking price: $10 million  

There's a generation that remembers Bradshaw as the calculating, championship-winning quarterback for the powerhouse Pittsburgh Steelers teams of the 1970s. Everyone else knows him as the erratic Fox (NWS) NFL Sunday commentator whose analysis seems borne of a horse hoof to the head.  

There could be a reason for that. Bradshaw's owned a sprawling ranch in Thackerville, Okla., for several years and just put it on the market. The 8,600-square-foot custom-built home has six bedrooms, six full and two half bathrooms and another 1,000 square feet of outdoor patio space with a kitchen, firepit and bar area. More importantly, the ranch's 744 acres include a four-station stallion barn, a 20-stall show barn, 500-stall mare barn with lab and office and a covered arena.  

Matt Hasselbeck's Washington spread
Asking price: $3.5 million  

Why would you own a home in Bellevue, Wash., in the same Medina neighborhood as Bill Gates if you live way across the country and aren't on the Microsoft (MSFT) payroll? Maybe because you're the only Seattle Seahawks quarterback to play in a Super Bowl and the last one to get the team a playoff win.  

Hasslebeck held the starting job in Seattle for eight years before being traded to the Tennessee Titans. Though he had to move his wife, Sarah, and their three children across the country, he can be forgiven for building this 6,340-square-foot palace. The house was built in 2005, just after questionable officiating cost Hasslebeck and the Seahawks a Super Bowl title. Figuring he'd be sticking around awhile, Hasslebeck found a half-acre lot with views of Meydenbauer Bay and built a beast of a home with four bedrooms, four and a half baths, a theater room, gym, heated four-car garage, decks, patios, a children's playset and full video surveillance. Hasslebeck may be gone, but well-off Seahawks fans looking to relive the glory days and drown out complaints about bad replacement ref calls and simultaneous possession may want a walk through Hasslebeck's former home.
