Biography

An NFL mainstay with a 13-year history, Warren Sapp enjoyed successful tenures with the Tampa Bay Buckaneers and Oakland Raiders. Sapp made football history by perfecting an on-field assignment known as the "three technique defensive tackle," which positioned him between the tackle and the offensive guard; his prowess in that role helped him net a myriad of honors and laurels, including seven Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl victory in 2002. Sapp formally announced his retirement from the NFL in 2007. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
