Former Eagles quarterback Rodney Peete has been named in a lawsuit for allegedly owing a ticket broker thousands of dollars in unpaid dues for tickets to Super Bowl LIII, TMZ reports.
The report claims that Peete bought eight tickets to see the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams face-off in the Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for a discounted price of $11,500 per ticket through the broker Barry’s Tickets. The broker alerted Peete that if he waited to pay after the game, the price would have risen to $12,500 per ticket. Peete agreed to the deal, and the broker gave him the tickets, figuring that he would pay the other half. However, he reportedly only paid the first half. After stringing the broker on for a few days, he completed ghosted Barry’s in mid-February.
Barry’s is now suing Peete for $54,000 to cover the cost of the tickets plus interest, as well as legal fees.
Peete, 53, had only played for The Eagles from 1995 to 1998, and while he had a long career in the NFL for 16 seasons, he was never signed to a massive contract before he retired in 2004. He is now in broadcasting, and this year, he co-hosted the Hallmark Kitten Bowl.
