There was speculation that Warren Sapp might be out of his broadcasting gigs after his false snitch accusation about Jeremy Shockey, especially after he was reprimanded by NFL Network. But Sapp so far has gone 1-for-2 and is producing a batting average good enough to get him into the Hall of Fame.

Showtime announced last week that Sapp was being dropped from his role on the weekly show “Inside the NFL.” But NFL Network made it publicly known that Sapp will be back with them.

NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger told USA Today Sports that “this is probably going to be news to some blogs and articles out there who’ve said his time is up here, but we picked up an option year on his contract.”

That’s big news for Sapp who has bankruptcy debts to deal with. So for those of you who enjoy Sapp’s analysis, you’ll get to see him on NFL Network for the next year. And for those of you who aren’t fans, you can only hope a celebrity death match between Sapp and Trent Dilfer is arranged.
