Bears punter Adam Podlesh was released from his gig on March 5 after finishing last in the NFL during the 2013 in punt average. He listed his Libertyville, Illinois house 10 days later for $949,000. That’s the way things go in the Not For Long league. One minute you’re living the life as a 30 year old working for the Bears. 10 days later you’re selling the 4,200 sq. ft. pad that has a decent man cave.

Adam paid $797,500 for the place in 2011 so hopefully he makes a little coin to help out while he’s looking for a new job.
Buyer beware – the house is 16 miles from Whole Foods.
