Warren Carlos Sapp is a Hall of Fame former American college and professional football player who was defensive tackle in the National Football League for thirteen seasons. He played college football for the University of Miami, where he was recognized as a consensus All-American and won multiple awards. Sapp was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1995 NFL Draft as the 12th overall pick, and played professionally for the Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders. In his nine seasons with the Buccaneers, he earned seven trips to the Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl ring in 2003. He moved to the Raiders in 2004. His 96.5 career sacks are the second-highest career sacks for a defensive tackle and the 28th highest overall for a defensive lineman. His 77 sacks with the Buccaneers ranks as the most ever recorded in the team's history. His career was checkered by controversy from his hard-hitting style of play and occasional verbal outbursts, both on the field and off. Some of these resulted in fines by the league, and he was once ejected from a game for unsportsmanlike conduct. In his first year of eligibility, on February 2, 2013, he was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Buccaneers will enter him into their Ring of Honor on November 11, 2013 and retire his #99 jersey. Sapp will become only the second Buccaneer to have his jersey retired, after Lee Roy Selmon.
