Ex-Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall retires to $1.4 million home in Santa Monica

Post NFL life has landed Rashard Mendenhall in Southern California.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' 2008 first round draft pick, Rashard Mendenhall, retired back in March from the NFL after his short one year stint with the Arizona Cardinals.

Mendenhall's retirement has led him to purchase a $1.4 million three floor home in Santa Monica, California.  The former Steelers running back's new home has 1,800 square feet, a fireplace, lofty spaces, gourmet kitchen, two full bathrooms and appears to be a nice buy after the running back reached a settlement against Hanesbrand, Inc. over a wrongful termination of his contract with them.

In his time with the Steelers, Mendenhall's best years came in 2009 and 2010 when he eclipsed 1000 yards rushing both years; he is the most recent Steeler to do so.

Mendenhall is still at the young age of 27, but chose to retire in order to preserve his health.  Mendenhall said he wanted to live his own life after his time in the NFL and become his own man without the expectation of being a representative of the NFL and his sponsors from his athletic days.

It looks like Southern California is where that journey begins for Mendenhall.  Best of luck to him.
