EXCLUSIVE

Future NFL Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy ... claiming he's racked up millions of dollars in debts ... but worst of all, dude claims he LOST his 2002 Super Bowl ring.

Sapp -- who played in the NFL for 12 years -- just filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Florida ... and in the papers he gives a full rundown of his dire financial situation.

According to the docs, Sapp owes more than $6.7 million to various creditors ... including hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support payments and alimony to at least 4 different baby mamas.

Among the debts, Sapp says he owes $853k to the IRS for 2006 and another $89k for 2010. Sapp says he also owes $2,858 in medical bills for "Corrective Speech and Language Therapy."

Sapp says he only has $6.45 million to his name ... and lists all of his assets in the documents ... which include:

-- 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

But most interestingly, Sapp notes he has LOST two of his most treasured and valuable possessions -- the 2002 Super Bowl ring he won with the Tampa Bay Bucs (example below) and the National Championship ring he won with the Miami Hurricanes.

In the docs, Sapp also lists his current salary as an analyst for the NFL Network as $45k per month ... $540k per year. Sapp says his deal with the NFL Network expires in August and he's not sure if the network will extend his deal.

Calls to Sapp have not been returned.

At least 4 of those white women thought they were going to hit the jackpot when they wanted to lay with him, little did they know he was going to be a loser once he got older and fatter. Now their stuck with nothing to raise their high dollar parasites that each need 45k a month to be raised.

Very disappointed. I thought he actually had some brain power to control himself and his finances. Guess not.

It appears that the NFL seminars on how NOT to get into this situation are a waste of time on some. Warren.....hide your head in shame......and don't blame anyone else but.........YOU!

If Michael Vick racked up $20 million in debt and he's nearly paid off ALL of it then so should Warren Sapp. This "sap" (pun intended) should pay off ALL of his debts.

Forgot to put in the link showing that Michael Vick owed $20 million in debt and he's paid off nearly all of it. Sapp should too.

YOU DUMBASSES    

HOW CAN SAPP HAVE A 1999 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RING WITH THE MIAMI HURRICANES WHEN HE WAS DRAFTED IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE NFL BY THE TAMPA BAY BUCS IN 1995?

HERE'S SOMETHING ELSE - THE CANES WON THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP IN 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991 AND 2001

FLORIDA STATE WON IN 1999 BY BEATING MIKE VICK AND VTECH
