Former Bucs and Raiders DT Warren Sapp has been selected to the Hall of Fame class of 2013.

The 2013 class has seven inductees: Sapp, LG Larry Allen, WR Cris Carter, LT Jonathan Ogden, LB David Robinson, head coach Bill Parcells, and DT Curley Culp. Sapp, Ogden, and Allen are the first-ballot members. Sapp was one of the best three-technique defensive tackles of all-time, racking up 96.5 sacks over 13 seasons, an incredible amount. Carter ranks fourth on the all-time receptions list and gets in on his sixth appearance on the ballot. Ogden spent all 12 seasons of his career with the Ravens, and made the Pro Bowl the final 11 seasons. Allen spent the majority of his career with the Cowboys and was a six-time first-team All-Pro, paving the way for Emmitt Smith. Parcells won two Super Bowls and three conference championships.

Raiders DT Warren Sapp announced his retirement from football.

"If you were going to pick a football team...and it came time for you to pick your three-technique," Sapp said, "you were taking me with you. That's all I ever wanted from this game." A seven-time Pro Bowler and six-time All Pro, Sapp retires with 96.5 sacks, an incredible amount for an interior lineman. He was Defensive Player of the Year in 1999 and won a Super Bowl with the Bucs in 2002. Sapp will likely be a first or second ballot Hall of Famer.

NFL fined Raiders DT Warren Sapp $75,000 for "unprecedented" physical and verbal abuse of officials during the team's Week 16 game

Raiders DT Warren Sapp said Wednesday that he doesn't expect to be suspended by the NFL for his team's season finale.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen and the Sacramento Bee reported last week that the league is considering suspending Sapp for Week 17 after he allegedly bumped an official. Sapp denies that. "Come on, I've never touched anybody," he said. "I've never been in a fight in this league. It's not about a fight."

Raiders DT Warren Sapp could be suspended for Week 17 after bumping an official during his outburst against the Jaguars Sunday.

Warren Sapp has been ejected from Sunday's game.

Warren Sapp is reportedly in danger of being released by the Raiders.

According to Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin, Warren Sapp has lost 49 pounds since last season and currently rests at 285.

Sapp showed he still has a lot left in the tank with a huge 2006 season (10 sacks, 67 total tackles). At his new weight, the 34-year-old should remain a highly productive under tackle with Terdell Sands on the nose.

Warren Sapp had his tenth sack of the season in Week 17, his most since 2000.

Defensive tackle Warren Sapp and quarterback Aaron Brooks say they want Art Shell to remain the head coach of the Raiders in 2007.

Too little too late? reported earlier this week that owner Al Davis may keep Shell around just to spite the NFL Network's Adam Schefter. Maybe the veteran players' support will help spur Davis' decision to stick with Shell. Shell says he isn't worried about being fired.
