Former NFL DT Warren Sapp has a new book coming out, in which he blasts former teammates and coaches, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The book — titled "Sapp Attack" — is promoted as "Big Man, Big Mouth, Big Laughs." However, players such as former QB Trent Dilfer and ex-Buccaneers defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin may not find it so funny, as Sapp shares his thoughts on their roles on various Tampa Bay teams during Sapp's tenure in Tampa (1995-2003), including the Bucs' Super Bowl XXXVII championship.

"Dilfer … basically was an interception waiting to happen," Sapp writes, according to the Times. "There were times we practically pleaded with him, 'We know you're not going to score a touchdown, but please, just don't turn it over.' "

On Kiffin, Sapp states, "I always believed Kiffin (blitzed) so much because he wanted the glory; it made him feel like a great defensive coordinator."

In the book, which has no release date, Sapp also criticizes WR Keyshawn Johnson and former Bucs head coach Sam Wyche, among others.

Sapp is an analyst for NFL Network, but his contract will be up for renewal in August. Showtime recently revealed that Sapp wouldn't return to its program "Inside the NFL" next season.

Sapp declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy in March.
