NFL castaway Jeremy Shockey -- who once signed a $26 million contract with the Giants -- is now locked in a legal battle with a Miami landlord ... over $16,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Shockey filed a lawsuit against the landlord of a $14,000-a-month Miami beach mansion -- where he lived for ONE MONTH last summer -- claiming she's holding his security deposit hostage for no good reason.

Shockey claims he paid the landlord one month's rent, plus a substantial security deposit ... but when he moved out, she refused to return $16,000 he's owed. 

Shockey claims he left the place in perfectly acceptable condition ... so the landlord's got no leg to stand on. Now, he's suing for $16,000 plus interest.

Calls to the landlord weren't returned.

Was Shockey shocked when he didn't get his security back as much as I was shocked that a team would pay him 26 million to play football.

You signed a contract and broke it. The landlord is allowed to keep the security for a lost month (minimum) of rent and any costs incurred while looking for a new tenant. At least you can afford it.

I hate landlords. They never want to give back your security deposit. Had to fight for mine back. They will make excuses for not wanting to give it back to you. Good for him for suing. Even if he is a millionaire, the landlord should not keep it if he left the mansion in a good condition.

Since Shockey signed at a Minimum of a one year lease and moved out after one month not only is the Landlord entitled to the Security Money, But at a Minimum 2 more months rent if they could not rent it out.
