Buccaneers legend Warren Sapp blasts fan for ignoring team’s history

Warren Sapp, Buccaneers

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle and NFL legend Warren Sapp recently got into with a fan on Twitter as the Pro Football Hall of Famer obviously felt disrespected by what might have simply just been a joke.

With the back-and-forth starting with the following tweet, Sapp did not hesitate to defend both himself and the franchise’s legacy.

It is worth noting, too, that Sapp spent the majority of his NFL playing career in Tampa Bay with the Buccaneers did suit up for the Oakland Raiders for four seasons to conclude his tenure atop the highest level. However, he wasn’t pleased about this.

Of course, though, it is quite hard to forget all that Sapp accomplished during his time with the Buccaneers. Now a Pro Football Hall of Famer, Sapp played a pivotal part in turning things around in Tampa Bay –and in a big way — while leading the team to a Super Bowl title during his nine-year stint with the Buccaneers. Not only that, but Sapp was named to seven Pro Bowls, served as a first-team All-Pro selection four times, and even had his No. 99 jersey retired by the NFC South franchise upon his retirement from the NFL.

It is hard to argue with the excitement level in Tampa Bay at the moment, however. With longtime New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and previously retired tight end Rob Gronkowski coming to town to join forces with a few superstars already on board the pirate ship, the Buccaneers could be a real force in the NFC South come next season.
