Baltimore Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie must find a way to fork over $4.3 million to a company that gave him a loan before last year’s lockout.
Pro Player Funding, a company that specialized in lockout loans last year, has obtained a judgement against McKinnie ordering him to pay $4.3 million, according to TMZ.
McKinnie, 32, got a loan for $4 million just before the lockout while he was still employed by the Minnesota Vikings, and he’s now being ordered to pay it back in full plus fees and interest. According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, the loan was deemed as “high risk” and contained a clause requiring him to pay the back the full loan with interest if he missed a payment.
After he was cut by the Vikings, McKinnie missed a payment, igniting the clause.
In his 10-year career, McKinnie has earned tens of millions of dollars with the Vikings and the Ravens. In addition to playing football, McKinnie owns a Miami-based music label, B Major Music Group.
McKinnie is due to make a reported $3.3 million in 2012, and he’ll need every penny of it to help settle his recent debt.
