Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has put up his suburban Atlanta estate up for sale.
A listing posted at Realtor.com says the embattled sports figure's property at Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth has seven bedrooms, eight and a half baths and has an estimated monthly mortgage payment of $23,206.
Gwinnett County property records show Vick purchased the home in April of 2005 for 3.7 million dollars. His yearly tax bill on the 1.5-acre estate is $26,720.
Vick pleaded guilty in August to federal charges of bankrolling a dogfighting ring in Virginia. He is scheduled to be sentenced December 10th in the federal dogfighting case.
He is expected to get at least a year in prison. He's also facing two state-level felony dogfighting charges in Virginia, which carry possible sentences of up to five years each.
He was suspended indefinitely without pay by the NFL, besides losing millions in lucrative endorsement deals, most notably with Nike.
