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 Network's Adam Schefter reports Warren Sapp has already told some of his Raiders teammates that he plans to retire.

Coach Lane Kiffin indicated as much in his season ending press conference Monday. It's unknown when Sapp intends to make his decision official.

FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer believes Raiders DT Warren Sapp will retire after the season.

Sapp, who turned 35 a week ago, struggled in run defense this year after shedding about 50 pounds in the offseason. His sack total (ten to two) also fell off drastically. Sapp is no longer a starting-caliber NFL player.

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

Sapp will be able to play in what may very well be his last game as a Raider Sunday. The league had considered suspending Sapp for Oakland's season finale, but likely didn't have the video evidence to justify doing so.

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.

Sapp earned three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and was ultimately ejected from the game for his actions. If he's suspended, Sunday could mark his last game as a Raider. Sapp struggled mightily against the run all year.

Warren Sapp has been ejected from Sunday's game.

Sapp drew two straight personal fouls for running his mouth to the refs while the Raiders defense simply melted down. What would have been a 50-yard field goal attempt for the Jags ended up first and goal from the two-yardline after three straight Raiders personal fouls.

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

Oakland has developed top-notch depth on the defensive line and may need cap room to sign JaMarcus Russell. Zack Crockett will likely be the first to go.

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.

What a surprising career resurgence. Sapp is going to be paid over $4 million next season and is easily worth it if he's playing like this.

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? ProFootballTalk.com 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.

Outside of deep IDP leagues, he's a fantasy non-factor.
