ST. CHARLES, Missouri (KMOV) -- Neighbors of a professional football player tells News 4 that they have had enough with what they call an eyesore of a property.

St. Charles County records show the house belongs to Randy McMichael, who once played with the St. Louis Rams and most recently signed a $2.7 million contract with the San Diego Chargers.  Neighbors say they are tired of looking at the weeds, the overgrowth and the damaged siding ever since McMichael left the Rams after three seasons.

McMichael, who has earned over $12 million in his career, has not made a payment on the property in nearly a year and has let it fall into foreclosure, according to U.S. Bank officials.

"It's frustrating that no one will take care of this place," Jennifer Shake, a neighbor, said.

News 4 has left a message with McMichael's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, but the star tight end has not returned the call.

"It is his house and I think he should be taking care of it but he is not and I don't think he cares," Shake said.

St. Charles County is trying to take action, but that will only get the weeds cut once which isn't consolation for the neighbors.

"With our neighbors on the corner trying to sell their property it is hard to sell a nice property when there is something like this across the road," Greg Knoblauch, a neighbor, said.
