    Warren Sapp

    NFL Hall of Fame Defensive Tackle

    Warren Sapp is an NFL Hall of Famer who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders. His 96.5 sacks (100 with playoffs included) during his 12-year career are the second-highest for a defensive tackle and the 28th-highest overall for a defensive lineman. He was a Super Bowl XXXVII Champion, was selected to seven Pro Bowls, was named a first-team All-Pro four times, was voted to the 1990s and 2000s All-Decade teams, and earned Defensive Player of the Year for 1999 for his 16.5-sack season. Recently, he has made headlines for speaking out on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which he may suffer from. Through his activism and work at the Concussion Legacy Foundation, Sapp’s hope is to move football in a safer direction as the game continues to evolve.
