Cowboys | Could target defensive tackles in draft

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 12:10:13 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys are likely to take a close look at defensive tackles at the draft combine this week. With Monte Kiffin taking over the defense, the Cowboys may look to find a Warren Sapp type player in the draft, which is good news since this is deep draft in that position according to Mel Kiper. "It's a loaded group," Kiper said. "You can also find defensive tackles in rounds two, three and four. If you need nose tackles, if you need three-techniques, you got it all covered in this draft."

Raiders | Sapp says young players did not listen

Mon, 22 Jun 2009 07:05:09 -0700

Peter King, of SI.com, reports retired DL Warren Sapp said some of the younger players on the Oakland Raiders roster, including DLs Tommy Kelly and Terdell Sands, would not listen to Sapp when he tried to give the players advice. "… In this NFL, the old vets don't factor in. The kids don't listen to nobody. Nobody! My last year in Oakland, I'd try to talk to some of the kids. Tommy Kelly, Terdell Sands. But they had no interest. I thought the ghosts in that building were so valuable, but none of the young guys cared. Once in a while, one of the old legends would come in the building, or make a trip. Jack Tatum would be around, and I'd say, 'You know who that dude is? You know how he played?' And the kids would be like, 'Nah, I don't care.'"

Eagles | Sapp says McNabb not fit enough

Wed, 28 Jan 2009 15:13:36 -0800

Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports former NFL DL and current NFL Network studio analyst Warren Sapp was asked why the Philadelphia Eagles are unable to win a Super Bowl. Sapp believes QB Donovan McNabb is not fit enough at the end of the year. Sapp added, "I don't think the quarterback is fit enough at the end of the season, because when you have that black thing on your arm, that's an IV. If I'm 300 pounds taking on a double team all day long and I don't need an IV to get through a game, then neither should my quarterback who is throwing the ball."

ESPN.com reports former Oakland Raiders DL Warren Sapp blames the Raiders problems on owner Al Davis and said former head coach Lane Kiffin didn't receive a fair chance as the team's head coach.

But once he comes over the top, he goes and starts moving it around."

At times I have been the reluctant messenger on a few of them myself. They are never pleasant."

Rick Stroud, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports former Oakland Raiders DL Warren Sapp categorized his time with the organization "as dark as a black hole."

Insubordination is grounds for termination in any company," Sapp said.

Raiders | Sapp claims food was tampered with on road trips

Thu, 23 Nov 2006 23:30:28 -0800

The Associated Press reports Oakland Raiders DL Warren Sapp claims his food was tampered with on road trips during his nine-year tenure in Tampa Bay from 1995-2003. Sapp said, "You get your food poisoned. They don't want you out there on Sunday. You don't think about it. It just got crazy." He claims his food was tampered with in Philadelphia before the NFC Championship Game at the end of the 2002 season, before a divisional playoff game in Green Bay in January 1998 and at New Orleans during the 1998 season. Sapp added he has not had food poisoning after leaving Tampa Bay. "I've been good out here on the West Coast. I guess they're more liberal out here."
