Warren Sapp filed for bankruptcy in Florida.

Former Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy in South Florida.

Court filings show the retired NFL star and current NFL Network commentator filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Fort Lauderdale on March 30.

The documents show he owes more than $6.7 million to creditors and back child support and alimony. Sapp's $6.45 million in assets includes over 200 pairs of Jordan sneakers.

He also reported losing his 2002 Super Bowl ring with the Bucs and his 1991 national championship ring from the University of Miami.

TMZ.com first reported the filing. Messages left with his attorney Saturday by The Associated Press were not immediately returned.

Sapp was a most famous for playing defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before coming to the Bay Area.
