Warren Sapp Is Bankrupt, Lost Super Bowl And Championship Rings

Warren Sapp - one of the most feared defensive tackles of all time - is bankrupt, just five years after the end of his NFL career, despite his lucrative job as a commentator for the NFL Network. TMZ - yeah, TMZ, deal with it - looked through his filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

We hear stories of athletes going broke all the time, and they eventually start to just all run together, but this one's especially sad. To add insult to injury, Sapp revealed that two, um, kind of important possessions of his - his 1999 University of Miami National Championship ring and his 2003 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl ring - have gone missing. Yes, a bankrupt guy lost two diamond-y expensive objects.

Sapp is technically way richer than all of us, being worth $6.45 million, but owes $6.7 million, including child support payments to four women and a host of other fun stuff. He makes over $500,000 a year with the NFL Network, but it apparently doesn't cover his expenses.

Best of luck to Sapp as he deals with some poor financial management, and hopefully he finds those rings. Has he looked under the couch cushions yet?
