Warren Sapp to Judge:

Jeremy Shockey Might

Come After Me

Broke NFL legend Warren Sapp has warned the judge in his bankruptcy case that Jeremy Shockey might sue his ass for defamation ... because Sapp accused him of being the "snitch" in the NFL bounty scandal.

As we previously reported, Shockey has been considering taking legal action against Sapp ... claiming Warren went on the NFL Network and FALSELY identified Jeremy as the man who blew the whistle on the New Orleans Saints just a few months ago.

For those unfamiliar with the bounty scandal ... the Saints were punished BIGTIME when league officials discovered players were encouraged to intentionally injure certain opponents ... and were even rewarded with cash prizes. Bad stuff.

Now, Sapp has filed new docs in bankruptcy court, listing Shockey as a potential creditor ... joining a long list of creditors that includes baby mamas, the IRS and a speech therapist.

Since Sapp initially filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy -- claiming he's broke-ass broke -- he's required to inform the court about any person who could make a financial claim against him.

Obviously, Sapp feels there's a chance Shockey will come after him in court.

Stay tuned.

Sapp always seemed like one of those players that just played hard when he thought he might get his name mentioned then spent the rest of the time running that fool mouth of his.

Sapp is an A$$ always has Been.. always will be. Why the NFL network hasn't fired him yet is beyond me. This Guy has No credibility. Shockey is a Douche Bag as well.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving individual ... had the talent to play clean and chose not to. So glad the NFL channel dumped him. He loves to bully folks and now everyone is on to his act. Don't let the door hit ya in the butt on the way out! Time to go get a job that requires no brain-power.
