Former football standout Warren Sapp’s home is up for auction. An ad appeared in Sunday’s New York Times listing the home as available through a bankruptcy auction.

It’s listed at 10,000 square feet in a two-level Tuscan-style design, reports USA Today[1]. Located in the posh Reserve at Lake Butler Sound community in Windermere, Fla., the 15,000-square feet home is on 2.9 acres. It also features 500 feet of water frontage, a boathouse and dock, a custom swimming pool with private lazy river and waterfall.

Included are 240 pairs of Air Jordan shoes, a lion skin rug and a boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali.

The former seven-time Pro-Bowl player and Super Bowl winner with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers filed for bankruptcy earlier this spring with debts of more that $6.5 million. The auction is a part of the agreement for the dismissal of the filing.
