The FBI tried unsuccessfully to lure quarterback legend Joe Montana into a real estate sting, the San Francisco Gate reports.

Montana’s attorney James Brosnahan said the bureau used an undercover agent posing as a real estate investor interested in partnering with a planned hotel development next to the 49ers’ new stadium.

“It shows the deepest lack of judgment I can imagine,” Brosnahan said.

The agent “presented himself as an honest businessman who wanted to invest in Montana’s hotel,” Brosnahan said.

The Gate reports that Montana wasn’t interested in a new partner and didn’t appear to do anything illegal.

The meeting with Montana was part of a four-year probe into that ended in the indictments in March of Leland  Yee, a now-suspended state senator, and 28 others.
