NFL lockout may force players to sell some pricey real estate

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tries to flog his plush Manhattan pad for a whopping $18.5m.

TOM BRADY HAS been prepping for the NFL lockout for a while now.

By the time it started this weekend, he had gone into contract to sell his Manhattan pad on a high floor in the twin-towered Time Warner Center, overlooking Central Park.

Brady had been renting out the three-bedroom spread for $50K per month since buying in 2004 and was previously asking $18.5M, but we’re betting the impending cash-flow problems might have driven him to cut a deal.

The Patriots quarterback and fellow pigskin slingers Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are suing the league for instituting a lockout.

With (relatively) lean times ahead, Manning and Brees might also be saying goodbye to some of their real estate holdings.
