Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill isn’t letting a season-ending knee injury keep him down.
With his teammates starting their regular season Sunday on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers, the 29-year-old Texas product is playing house.
According to Broward County records, Tannehill and wife Lauren just obtained a $1 million loan from UBS Bank, reportedly for some improvements to their already perfect home in the heart of the Fort Lauderdale canal district.
Never miss a local story.
The usually careful couple, who recently had their first child, are taking a bit of a risk with an adjustable rate, 30-year loan, records show.
The famously private Tannehill, who’s making $20 million a year while rehabbing his bum knee, isn’t talking, but a neighbor who asked to remain anonymous said the Tannehills fell a tad tight in their 5,400-square-foot Colee Hammock crib — originally built with four bedrooms in 1981.
“We understand they’re going to make a lot of changes, including a larger main house,” the neighbor said. “It needed a few updates.”
The high-profile couple bought the property for $4.3 million just days after it came on the market in early 2015.
The house was uniquely designed by a disciple of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
