Found June 26, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

Former Buccaneers defensive end Simeon Rice told Booger and Rich on CBS Radio that he was in a class of his own when he played in the NFL. Simeon Rice joined Booger and Rich and said his own body of work shows that he was a tremendous pass rusher and that he never got the respect he truly deserved. Rice told Booger and Rich that Michael Strahan was an excellent defensive lineman, but Rice himself was in a class of his own. Rice said that he felt that he impacted the game by being one of the first hybrid defensive ends in the NFL. Rice even said Tiki barber doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he called Warren Sapp an idiot for giving his opinion. Rice also said that Warren Sapp is real and Tiki doesn’t have the knowledge that Sapp does when it comes to pass rushers.   Need NFL Tickets?
