See Sapp Sack


It didn’t take long for Warren Sapp to change the culture of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quickly turn around the fortunes of the once downtrodden franchise. The Class of 2013 defensive tackle was a disruptive force in the middle of the Buccaneers’ defense, which defined the team.

In 1999, he led Tampa Bay to their first division title in 18 seasons en route to being named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year. Three years later Sapp and the Bucs defense, ranked number one in both total defense and pass defense, once again dominated the competition on their way to a Super Bowl XXXVII victory over the Oakland Raiders.

Throughout his 13-season NFL career, Sapp registered an impressive 96.5 sacks. He logged at least a half sack in 74 games and multiple sacks in 23 contests during his career with the Buccaneers and Raiders. Sapp’s teams combined for a 44-30 record when he was involved with dropping the opponent’s passer for a loss. In those game in which he had multiple sacks, his team posted a 16-7 record.
