On Tuesday, the Buccaneers announced they would hold a press conference Thursday afternoon to introduce the next inductee into their Ring of Honor at Raymond James Stadium. However, the cat is out of the bag and the new inductee has a name. And that name is Warren Sapp.  Sapp, who was a member of the Bucs from 1995-2003, will also be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame this August. Via the Tampa Tribune, he spoke about what it meant to receive the honor from the Bucs. If you look around this league and see all those great names up in the stadiums in cities like Chicago, Green Bay and Minnesota, the Ring of Honor is like the who’s who of the who’s who. Your name is up there right next to the Coca-Cola sign. Think about all the bowl games, the concerts, the monster truck shows at Raymond James … your name is always sitting there. The seven-time Pro Bowler had 77 sacks in nine seasons with Tampa Bay and was a key piece to the Bucs memorable Super Bowl XXXVII run during the 2002 season. Sapp was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1999 — just five seasons after being drafted by the Bucs 12th overall. The post Warren Sapp will be inducted the Bucs Ring of Honor appeared first on The Bay Cave.
