Described by PFT’s Mike Florio as the NFL’s version of Jekyll and Hyde, Warren Sapp was on his best behavior a year ago because he understood his Hall of Fame candidacy relied on his public persona. Now that the former defensive tackle is enshrined in Canton, he’s letting loose and speaking his mind.
Sapp now takes aim at Hall-worthy defensive end Michael Strahan, saying the former New York Giant “comes up short” of his standards for enshrinement. Strahan has responded by calling Sapp a coward and the obligatory bad names, but Florio believes there must be a level of jealousy on Sapp’s part. Strahan has clearly been much more successful after his playing career ended, and the former Buc’s file for bankruptcy probably factors in as well.
