Retired NFL Player Warren Sapp Files For Bankruptcy

Warren Sapp

Warren SappRetired NFL player Warren Sapp is broke, and has filed for bankruptcy, claiming millions of dollars in debt, says reports.

According to TMZ, the 39-year-old former defensive tackle filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Florida recently, and in court docs, runs down his dire financial situation.

As shown in papers, Sapp owes more than $6.7 million to various creditors — including hundreds of thousands in child support payments and alimony owned to, at least, four different women to whom he has children.

Other specifics include $853k owed to the IRS for 2006 and another $89k for 2010; and $2,858 owed in medical bills for “Corrective Speech and Language Therapy.”

Sapp isn’t complete broke, though. He says he has $6.45 million to his name, but that’s less than what he owes, so he’s filed for bankruptcy. Below are some the assets he lists in court docs:

  • 240 pairs of Jordan sneakers and sandals
  • Large Nude women painting
  • Lion skin rug (female – lioness)
  • Nike golf clubs
  • De Grisogono watch (scratch on crystal, nicks and scratches on band)
  • A boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali

Two things that aren’t listed, that he says he has lost, are: the 2002 Super Bowl ring he won with the Tampa Bay Bucs; and the 1999 National Championship ring he won with the Miami Hurricanes.

Sapp retired from the NFL in 2008, after 12 years in the league, during which he was a dominate defensive force. He earned 7 Pro Bowl appearances, was named Defensive Player of the Year in 1999, and was voted a First Team All-Pro four times.

Life after the NFL, he’s taken a job as an analyst for the NFL Network, which he says pays him $45,000 a month, or $540,000 a year.

However, his contract with the NFL Network expires in August, and he’s unsure if the network will extend his deal.
