A bad week for NFL analyst Warren Sapp was tipped to get worse, with a report indicating the bankrupt former tight end will be ditched from his TV analyst gig. The NFL Network was expected to drop Sapp in the wake of his comments over the Saints bounty scandal, The Boston Globe reported Sunday, citing two league sources. Sapp, who reportedly filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Florida amid debts of up to $6.7 million, has not appeared on the network since he controversially outed former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey on air as the "snitch" who prompted the league's probe into the franchise. He first made the allegation on Twitter. Shockey vehemently denied the accusation, with the support of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, while the NFL Network stepped away from Sapp's claims and warned him not to overstep his role as an analyst. Sapp's contract expires in August and is not expected to be renewed, a source told the Globe. Although a network spokesman refused to discuss his status, another source confirmed to the newspaper that Sapp was yet to be booked in for another on-air appearance. Sapp was understood to be paid $540,000 annually from the analyst job.
