[Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly noted that the home sold for $3.17 million when it actually netted $3.715 million. The article has since been changed and updated. We regret the error.]

NaVorro Bowman, who spent nearly a decade as a linebacker in the NFL, playing for both the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders, recently put up his five-bed, four-and-a-half bathroom home at 1631 University Way on the market. It sold on Thursday for $3.715 million.

Bowman previously listed the home for more than $4.2 million in July, hoping to run up the score in San Jose’s hot market.

A price cut chopped that down to $4 million in October, and the eventual buyer managed to cut the lead down even further.

According to Goni’s listing, the University Way home was “designed and remodeled by renowned area builder [Mark] De Mattei as his personal residence for over twenty years” before the turnover to Bowman.

As for Bowman, who played for the 49ers after being drafted between 2010 and 2017 and is presently a free agent, SportTrac reports that his recent one-year deal with the Raiders netted him $2.6 million, while sports blog Over The Cap estimates that he’s earned over $42 million in the course of his eight-year NFL career. So he’s probably not hurting too much from this particular hit.
