NFL Star Antonio Cromartie

We're Foreclosing on Your Home

superstar Antonio Cromartie -- the dude with 10 kids (and 2 on the way) -- is in danger of losing the house he bought with his mom back in 2006 ... right AFTER he became a multi-millionaire ... TMZ has learned.

Cromartie is being sued by the Bank of NY ... for allegedly blowing off $105,381 in missed mortgage payments on an 864 sq. foot home he bought in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida in November '06.

According to Zillow.com, Cromartie bought the house for $135k. Docs show he co-signed on the loan with his mom right after he was selected in the 1st round of the 2006 NFL Draft  ... and they locked in on a ridiculously high 9.7% interest rate.

Bank of NY claims Antonio stopped making payments in 2010 ... and now it wants a judge to force the Pro Bowler to hand over the keys to the property AND make good on his mortgage payments ... plus interest.

We're guessing the bank is aware of the MASSIVE contract he signed with the Jets last year ... 4-years, $32 million ... which probably isn't that much considering he's got 12 mouths to feed ... plus baby mamas.

Calls to Cromartie's reps have not been returned.

Boy howdy is that ever a case of 2 wrongs don't make a right. He was stupid for paying that much for a house that small and the bank (loan shark) wants their pound of flesh and more. I just wish I could afford to get a couple of light switches fixed!

Get off this master investors back.
He signs a 32 million dollar contract then uys this rats nest for 125,000 with a mortgage. It's a work of genius, now he has plenty of cash for the important things in life. As far as the repo there is a nice big empty dumpster in Fort Myers just begin for a new tenant.
