Warren Sapp Brings A New, Respected Voice To Practice

June 1st, 2022

“Joel, just Venmo my check to me.”

Joe already touched on how yesterday Bucs legend Warren Sapp was at Bucs underwear football practice coaching up defensive linemen. And that is cool as hell.

Even though Todd Bowles is the new head coach, this was a chip off the old block from former Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians. When Arians first took the job, Joe remembers he put out a Bat-signal of sorts, wanting all former Bucs stars to come by often. Arians, unlike many other coaches, welcomed the input from former greats.

And when Arians was often asked about his diverse coaching staff, Arians said he wanted many different voices. So Bowles inviting Sapp in sounds like something Arians would do (Joe doesn’t know for a fact Arians directly invited Sapp to practice[s] in the past, but Joe does know the door was always open for Sapp, who did pop in from time to time.)

Bowles said his defensive staff was all for inviting Sapp to participate.

“Me and him have a good relationship and, you know, wanted to bring him in to teach the D-line a few things,” Bowles said. Defensive line coaches “Coach [Kacy] Rodgers and Coach ‘Lo’ (Lori Locust) were all for it.

“So, I thought it would be a good idea to learn from a guy that’s done it recently, or more recently than the coaches have, and it would be good for the guys to hear and see a different perspective.”

You don’t think Sapp had Logan Hall’s attention? Imagine a rookie from whom so is expected, in one of his first NFL practices, being coached up by a Hall of Famer.

Joe loves this for a variety of reasons. One, it allows Sapp to be directly involved with his team. Second, what a way to break up the monotony of underwear football to keep players engaged. When practices get monotonous, minds begin to lose focus.

Bringing Sapp in had guys refocus their attentions.

    Let us hope he is a good Coach.

  2. Crickett Baker Says:

    He wasn’t all THAT bad, as a person, but in the last several years he has changed for the better by a bunch. I agree with everything Joe said, and I bet a few vets were disappointed that they missed him. HAHA Sure made otas more interesting.

    Looks like #93 goes to the same tailor as Don Cherry and the late Craig Sager. Definitely livens up the practices at One Buc.

    #99 u mean. What type of buc fan are you.

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m wondering about Sapp & his finances…..is he making an income?…..last I heard, he lost it all….

  11. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Correct statements above. POS indeed. I would not invite him in.

  12. ben Says:

    Sapp was a GREAT player and made the other team look scared ..He was the man !!

  13. BUCman Says:

    “Respected Voice”???? LOL!……..Sapp was talented but definitely a POS as a person. I don’t like the idea of him giving advice to Logan Hall, JTS, or any of our young guys for that matter. The team should have distanced itself from him a long time ago.

  14. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Loved Sapp when he played…but at this point, he’s useless as a teacher. The game has changed too much.

    You really think some 22 year old kids trying to make an NFL team give a shiite that Sapp slapped around a couple of whores? They were, what, 10 when that happened? Betcha they heard every word Sapp said.

    Didn’t see you on the field yesterday with the defensive coaches and players while Sapp was talking to the defensive linemen. Should have said hi to Joe.

  17. CleanHouse Says:

    I asked Sapp for an autograph outside of an ice cream shop in Jupiter, FL about5 years ago and he told me to go f myself. Great guy.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    Sapp is one of the greatest Bucs of all time.

    He may be an a-hole, but he’s our a-hole!

  19. BigMacAttack Says:

    I love Sapp and glad he’s here. He’s loud, boisterous and funny. He really knows how to get his point across and no doubt the youngsters benefited from his presence. Off the field who cares. Every single congressman and senator (both sides) does way worse every single day. They exempt themselves from laws like insider trading so how can anyone criticize Warren for his minor antics. Goodell and the NFL if wrought with hypocrites.

  20. CrackerBall Says:

    Being a great player does not necessarily make you a great teacher…

  21. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    WOW! Some of you people really love to point out the personal lives of other people . Act like you have never made mistakes in your life ! Maybe you should get on a plane and go to the Vatican so the Pope can anoint you a saint ! You were the same people that wanted the Bucs to trade for Deshawn Watson and blamed Bruce Arians for A.B. being a nut job ! But our Bucs legendary DT Warren Sapp is worse to you then Watson ?? Why because he hurt your feelings by giving you the middle finger in traffic one day 20 year’s ago ?? Get a life and stop finding anything you possibly can to complain about !! Go Bucs , Go @Joe and Go Warren Sapp !!
    P.S. I bet you probably weren’t in the stadium when Sapp was on the field and the ENTIRE stadium was screaming “Warren, Warren, Warren” … It was one of the best things I’ve ever heard and been a part of. And he fed off that and delivered by putting the QB on his azz !!

  22. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    And if it’s good enough for the Bucs to have him there , then you should either be happy or shut up. Because I think they know exactly what they are doing and none of us do .. Let the Bucs do what they think is best for the team. Simeon Rice has been to many practices as well as Ronde Barber and the A-Train ..

  23. bucsince79 aka bumaneer Says:

    Love that the Glazers have a close relationship with Sapp…

  24. Buczilla Says:

    I can’t say that our team has ever been in a better place and it’s a great time to be a fan.

    P.S. Mr. Licht please get us an outside corner that is actually good with little injury history.
