Warren Sapp

I'm Still a Champion

... Even Without My Rings

EXCLUSIVE

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."

I wonder how much the person got for the ring when he or she pawned it?
