Chris and Monique shared a 12,000-square-foot home in Potomac.

The couple's three-story cedar, stone, and shingle house home was featured in The Washington Post and features six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, an elevator, and a two-story kitchen.

"You can only play football for so long," he said at the time (via Al.com). "You have to find other means of making a living. I wanted to establish something for the kids."

He continued, "Real estate is one of the best investments. You can never go wrong if you do it the right way."
