Warren Sapp officially retires

by thoughtfulconservative

Two of my favorite players retire the same day (a tip of the conservative ball cap to grumps, who as a Packer fan, obviously doesn’t think as highly of Sapp as we Buccaneers fans do).

Warren Sapp’s 13-year NFL career officially ended when his retirement was posted on the Oakland Raiders’ Web site.

Sapp said immediately after last season that he was through playing, but did not file the paper work. The posting on the team’s site was the first official word that the star defensive tackle was done.

In January, the 35-year-old Sapp posted a two-word message on his Web site: “I’M DONE!” He had told teammates and coaches his plans after the season finale against San Diego.

Packer fans are understandably upset at Sapp for what they consider a cheap hit that injured tackle Chad Clifton.

But when the Bucs were in the “Black and Blue” division, I enjoyed watching Favre and Sapp trash talk back and forth.

The game will be duller without these two great players.
