Antwan Odom's house burns down

Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom has lost his Cincinnati home to a fire.

The blaze erupted at around 2:40 a.m. Mason Deputy Fire Chief Craig Bryant said the house is a "total loss." Carrie Cochran of the Cincinnati Enquirer snapped a picture of the damage.

Fortunately, Odom, his wife and their five children live in Alabama during the offseason. It is not known if that’s where they are now, but a neighbor said the family is out of town.

Interestingly enough, the Bengals said they are in the process of contacting Odom to express their concern. Teams are forbidden from communicating with players during the lockout. But, team spokesman Jack Brennan explains, "For just an expression of concern it’s OK to contact him. There is no business-related contact with players during lockout, but for a personal matter such as this we are at least able to try to reach him."

Odom’s home was valued at $1.1 million. Odom signed a five-year, $29.5 million contract in 2008 ($11.5 million guaranteed).

You think he has a mortgage? His contract had 11.5M in guarenteed money. Nice try Sherlock Holmes.

Sure would like to know how that fire started. A big ol' home like that...no reason why it should catch on fire. i wonder if the mortgage was underwater?
