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.

Football legend Joe Montana was a subject of an FBI investigation that snared state California state Sen. Leland Yee and previously convicted Chinatown mobster, “Shrimp Boy.”

CNN reports that FBI agents came up with nothing incriminating against the Hall of Fame quarterback.

“Nobody has said he did anything wrong,” said the source, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case.

Montana, who has been involved in development deals since his 1994 retirement from the NFL, was questioned about an unidentified business proposal during the Yee probe.

In the end, investigators could not tie him to anything legal, the sources told CNN.
