Warren Sapp And The Bucs

May 5th, 2011

Warren Sapp was one of the greatest defensive tackles in NFL history much less Bucs franchise history. He still tries to help out the Bucs as he hand-picked Keith Millard as one of two new defensive line coaches and likes to brag on NFL Network about Bucs coach Raheem Morris, “We raised him.”

A Bucs fan asked Woody Cummings recently on the Bucs TBO Q & A feature what else Sapp is doing with the Bucs.

Q: Hey guys! Hate this no football thing! I have wondered if Warren Sapp has been working with Gerald McCoy at all since he has come into the NFL. I know he was more excited with him than Ndamukong Suh over in Detroit. Has he done anything with him and what do you expect from McCoy this year?

A: Sapp worked with McCoy a little bit on the field before the season started last year and the two have remained in close contact since. Not sure if they’ve worked much this offseason, but my guess is they have. McCoy says he’s back to full strength following his biceps injury, so I would expect him to pick up where he left off last year when he got hurt. He was just starting to pick things up and make an impact on a regular basis and I would expect that to continue from the start, whenever that start may come.

This may very well continue this summer. Sapp has already reached out to Bucs second-round pick Da’Quan Bowers presumably he is also going to do the same with first-round pick Adrian Clayborn.

Joe thinks it’s cool that the old guard of the Bucs is still doing its part to help the new Bucs succeed, sort of like passing the torch.

    I miss Warren.

    I never cared for Sapp off the filed much, but great to hear he has been doing this. I would love to see Lynch and brooks do the same.

    Yeah I agree Dave. Off the field he loves to play the ‘jackas$’ role. That said he is a future HOFer. He works his butt off now as a sports analyst and worked his butt off as a player.

    The dip chewing/spitting on a towel after games while being interviewed is very disrespectful in my book. You have men taking their time to interview you and you do something so disgusting and disrepectful??

    Warren played his cards correctly though. So did Chris Simms.

    That ain’t my pot stash…it’s my… friends. Yes, thats it! It’s my friends mary jane.

    If you think about it its a smart move on both parts. Maybe Talib does the same.

    That ain’t my gun! It’s my Moms!!

    Maybe he, and the other players, feel it’s desrespectful to allow media into a locker room where they are sometimes nude.

    Either way, Sapp isn’t really like that. He smart. He developed a gimick for himself early on, and because of it, he still makes money in football related work.

    As to Adrian Clayborn, I suspect Sapp will really, really take a liking to this kid, seeing how alike they are.

    If I were the Bucs…I would call Sapp and tell him if he spends time working with the Dline during hte lockout, then they will pay him a very large sum to come in and speak to the players one day in training camp after the lockout ends.

    That way, no rules are being broken, and he’ll put a good amount of time in with them. I would love to see him as an assistant dline coach here at some point.
