Made millions with the Miami Dolphins then lost it all in a special effects company.

Dan Marino was the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins from 1983 to 1999. In 2000 he retired from the NFL. He co-owned the NASCAR Winston Cup Series racing team and invested in Digital Domain Media Group, the company founded by James Cameron and produced the digital effects for films like Titanic and the Tupac hologram at Coachella.

But that invested proved to be his undoing. After owning more than 1,576,525 shares of the company worth $14.5 million back in 2011, the company’s stock tanked to 55 cents leaving him with only $867,000 in stock.

He declared bankruptcy after Digital Domain lost him $13.6 million.
