Michael Oher, the 27-year-old inspiration for The Blind Side book (2006) and movie (2009) about his early life in Memphis and the adoptive parents who helped turn things around for him, recently signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Tennessee Titans after logging five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
Oher made his return to Tennessee official by buying up a handsome $1.3 million Brentwood home in the Forest Hills neighborhood, as reported by both The Nashville Business Journal and The Tennessean this week. Click the Tennessean link to see lots of photos of this gorgeous house. 

Oher reportedly purchased the home, which was built in 2007, from real estate investor/entrepreneur Rocky D. Tannehill. According to reports, Tannehill bought the home in 2012 for $1.05 million from Dr. Kevin Churchwell, who is the former CEO of the Vanderbilt Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital.
Oher's new 8,126-square-foot home includes six bedrooms and eight baths and sits on a spacious 2.1-acre lot. Built in 2007, it had been listed for $1.43 million. There's a home theater and a recreation room with a bar. It's a beautiful home; only thing missing is a pool, if you ask us! But with 2+ acres, there should be plenty of room to add one. 
Oher, who played football for the University of Mississippi until he graduated with a degree in criminal justice in the spring of 2009, wrote his autobiography, I Beat The Odds: From Homelessness to The Blind Side and Beyond, in 2011.
Welcome to the Titans, and back to Tennessee, Michael!
