Ever wondered how football stars live? Former Detroit Lion and now Buffalo Bill running back and Heisman Trophy winner (from USC) Reggie Bush has sold his Birmingham home. The house went on the market last summer for $2.495 million and sold last month for $1.9 million.

And yes, there is a huge game room with bar area and football memorabilia.

771 Shepardbush

The super modern property, which was built in 1998 and remodeled in 2013, is 8,000 square feet, with five bedrooms, four full and three half baths, and a walk-out lower level that leads to a built-in swimming pool. The standout features are its huge windows overlooking the green landscape. It also has heated floors, a gourmet kitchen, and a state-of-the-art home automation/electronics system. Here's a look inside the former Lion's home.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "the running back has been making moves in the real estate game. In October, Bush was part of a group of professional-athlete investors who paid $8.95 million for a half-acre property in Beverly Hills for the purposes of speculative development."

*And yes, we know who he used to date. We don't feel the need to say it.
