-- DT Warren Sapp had 77 sacks as a Buccaneer and 96.5 in his NFL career
In nine years with the Buccaneers, Sapp racked up 77 sacks, second in franchise history to fellow Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon (78.5). He went to seven Pro Bowls, second to Derrick Brooks' 11 all-star trips, and was a six-time All-Pro selection. In 1999, Sapp was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year after recording 12.5 sacks and helping the Buccaneers come within minutes of their first Super Bowl berth.
Sapp finished his NFL career with four seasons in Oakland, eventually amassing 96.5 sacks, second all-time among defensive tackles. He was credited with redefining the DT position, and he did it all with a larger-than-life personality that made him one of the most recognizable players of his generation. On August 3 he entered the Hall of Fame as the first Buccaneer ever to be selected as a first-ballot inductee. On November 11, he will become the fourth player to enter the Buccaneers Ring of Honor at Raymond James Stadium in a halftime ceremony during Tampa Bay's Monday Night Football matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
