Former NFL linebacker Ken Norton Jr. and his wife, Angela, have sold their Marina del Rey home for $1,999,000.

The four-level contemporary home was built in 2000 and features an elevator, a media room and a top-floor gym. Five bedrooms and six bathrooms are contained in 5,800 square feet of living space.

Norton, 44, played for the Dallas Cowboys (1988-1993) and the San Francisco 49ers (1994-2000). His father is a former heavyweight champion.

The couple sold because Norton is now the linebacker coach for the Seattle Seahawks.

The house sold in 2001 for $1.55 million, according to Trulia.com.

Susan Williams of Lighthouse Property had the listing. Debbie Sutz of the same office represented the buyers.
