0125_jamal_anderson_foreclosed_house_launch
Former NFL star Jamal Anderson took a beating on his Georgia mansion ... TMZ has learned his primo crib was sold off at a foreclosure auction ... for $225,000 LESS than what Jamal paid.

Jamal -- who played for the Atlanta Falcons from 1994 to 2001 -- bought the MASSIVE 10-bedroom, 9-bath crib way back in 1999 (when he had an NFL contract) for $1.225 million.

According to official records, Anderson defaulted on his mortgage ... so the bank foreclosed the home and recently sold it at auction for an even $1,000,000.

It was a STEAL for the buyer ... the pad is over 6,000 square feet, sits on 2 acres and is rockin' a separate guest house, arcade room, media room, pool and spa.

In other Jamal news ... TMZ has learned he just paid off that $1.1 million federal tax lien. Yay.

These guys earn millions of dollars, yet their selfish greed is so intense they don't even pay their bills. So foolish.

This is a lesson for all the other NFL players and anyone who buys a big expensive house like this... pay cash. Some day you might not be making the large green.


And then remember to pay your property tax after that.

That's probably the best thing that could have happen to him, start anew with a new perception of things.
