Warren Sapp

I'm Still a Champion

... Even Without My Rings

4/7/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NFL superstar Warren Sapp
Former NFL superstar Warren Sapp says he isn't too broken up about his missing Super Bowl ring ... telling TMZ, "That ring didn't make me a champion, my team and I did."

TMZ spoke with the future Hall-of-Famer after he filed bankruptcy papers in Florida, in which he says he lost both his 2002 Super Bowl ring AND the National Championship ring he won during his days at the University of Miami.

Sapp tells us ... he's pretty sure he lost the Super Bowl ring while traveling a few years ago ... because the last time he saw it was right before a trip.

Sapp says he never really wore the ring ... so he's not bothered by the loss.

Ditto for the college ring ... Sapp tells us, "Have you ever seen the Miami Hurricanes championship ring? It was 10 carats of cubic zirconia and yellow gold. it might be worth 300 bucks."

If Warren really did lose those rings it just goes to show that winning a National Championship and the Super Bowl didn't mean much to him at all. It was all about the MONEY, MONEY, MONEY for Warren. I wonder what Warren's old teammates think about this. His teammates probably have their rings in trophy cases and every time they look at them it brings back good memories.

I hope Warren Sapp loses his job on "Inside the NFL" on Showtime and he is forced to pay back every penny of his debts like Michael Vick did.

He is not broken up because the rings will reappear after he is done with bankruptsy court. He might be broken up when creditors file motions with the court challenging him on loosing the rings, and he will have to prove it.

The Bucs won the Superbowl in 2003 -- Not 2002.

Warren hasn't "lost" his rings, unless his definition of lost means storing the rings in a secret location so he doesn't have to put the items up for auction - if that's what he meant by "lost" - sure, we believe you Mr. Sapp!!
