Sapp’s mansion up for sale again after court rejects bid

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Warren Sapp’s mansion is back on the market. According to Realtor.com, when the 15,000-square-foot Tuscan mansion in Windemere went up for auction in November, it received a bid of $2.3 million from Brenda Dykgraff, a fitness entrepreneur who developed the Ab Roller. However, the court handling Sapp’s bankruptcy case rejected the bid. The house has been relisted at $2.9 million, Realtor.com said. The mansion, built in 2005 for nearly $7 million, includes 10,100 square feet of living space, including four large bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three half-baths, a wine cellar, a movie theater, a resort-style swimming pool with waterslide and lazy river, 500 feet of combined frontage and a dock on Lake Butler.
Last April, Sapp filed for Chapter 7 protection due to business losses, with about $6.5 million in assets and debt exceeding $6.7 million. Assets listed included the aforementioned lion's rug, more than 200 pairs of Air Jordan shoes, a large painting of a nude woman, and a watch worth $2,400. Sapp played nine years for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1995 to 2003. He was recently elected to the pro football Hall of Fame.
