Seven-time Pro Bowler and NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp filed for bankruptcy in south Florida. According to the AP, he owes more than $6.7 million to creditors and in back child support and alimony.

His average monthly income tops $115,000. Among his assets? A lot of shoes and a lion skin rug.

Sapp's $6.45 million in assets includes 240 pairs of Jordan athletic shoes worth almost $6,500, a $2,250 watch and a lion skin rug worth $1,200. He also reported losing his 2002 Super Bowl ring with the Bucs and his 1991 national championship ring from the University of Miami.

Really, who doesn't need 240 pairs of Jordans? And a house isn't a home without a lion skin rug.

As a player, Sapp had 96.5 sacks for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders. He was outspoken and often angered opponents, including Jerome Bettis and Green Bay Packers' coach Mike Sherman.

The outspoken style has continued through his retirement in his job as an NFL Network analyst. He most recently found himself in hot water after he called Jeremy Shockey a "snitch" in connection with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.

According to the bankruptcy filing, his NFL Network contract is up in August.
