Former defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers recounts his colorful career on and off the field.

NFL

Sapp (born December 19, 1972) is a former American football defensive tackle who played in the National Football League (NFL) for 13 seasons, primarily with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sapp played college football at Miami, where he was recognized as a consensus All-American, and was selected by the Buccaneers in the first round of 1995 NFL Draft. He spent nine seasons with the Buccaneers and was a member of the Oakland Raiders in his last four seasons. Following Sapp's NFL career, he was an analyst on NFL Network until 2015.

Analysts at the time thought he would be drafted much higher. He ran the fastest time in the 40-yard dash for a defensive tackle (4.69 sec). But due to reports of multiple failed cocaine and marijuana tests released the night before the draft, many teams passed on him. The NFL released a statement strongly denying the rumors, and Sapp today believes an anonymous snitch had intentionally sabotaged his draft chances.
