Former NFL running back Jamal Lewis reportedly has filed for bankruptcy. The 10-year NFL veteran has filed for Chapter 11 protection, according to TMZ.com. He has assets of about $14.5 million and owes about $10.5 million, TMZ reported from court papers filed in Atlanta.

Among Lewis’ assets reportedly are five homes, at least five cars, a 401K worth about $500,000 and part ownership of a Columbus, Ohio, waterpark, which is worth about $6 million. He owes, among others, a lien with Bank Of America for $947,876 and $113,000 to Mercedes Benz.

The last NFL contract he signed was a three-year, $17 million deal in 2008.

Lewis, 32, played seven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, helping them win the Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 with 103 yards rushing. He also played three seasons with the Cleveland Browns before retiring in 2009 with 10,607 rushing yards.

He was the fifth overall pick in the 2000 NFL draft and left Baltimore as the Ravens’ all-time leading rusher (7,801 yards). He became the fifth player in NFL history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season when he rushed for 2,066 in 2003.
