Sapp apologizes to Strahan

The SportsXchange

Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp said Sunday he apologized to former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan for disparaging comments he made about him last week.

Sapp made news when he questioned Strahan's Hall of Fame credentials last week. After Strahan responded, Sapp challenged him to a fight.

Strahan was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday. Sapp said he apologized to him afterward. Sapp was on hand for the induction of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate, linebacker Derrick Brooks.

"I saw Michael Strahan last night on my way going to (see) Derrick Brooks," Sapp said Sunday. "I walked up to him, I grabbed him and hugged him and wouldn't let him go. I said please forgive me."

Last week, Sapp said of Strahan: "When you stack it up, he only has four straight Pro Bowls and a mythical sack record that y'all still walk around like it's something to be praised. I mean y'all have got to get off your high horse in New York and speak about the real. And when you really measure him up, he comes up short."

Strahan sarcastically responded by saying, "I am, I'm all hype. I lasted 15 years, all hype. I had 141 1/2 career sacks, all hype. I was always a starter. I played left end, and that made me get sacks. My coaches kept putting me in the game because they felt it gave us the best chance to win, and that was all hype."
