Ex-Bears QB Sacked

New, 1 comment

Bob Avellini, who played quarterback for the Bears from 1975 to 1984, is in a bit of a bind. A bank has filed a $535,000 foreclosure suit against the former jock for loans he took out on an eight-unit apartment building in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. Avellini blames the tenants, who know how to "work the system" by not paying rent. "I've got tenants who owe me $15,000 to $20,000 in back rent," he told Crain's. [Chicago Real Estate Daily]
