Sapp’s stats and highlights should be enough proof of Warren‘s legendary status but it was his performance against a legend that cemented Sapp’s status. Brett Farve said it best:

The battles between Sapp & Farve typically extended past the whistle with everything from a cold stare to straight up trash talking. This was somehow done with respect. Respect towards the game and towards each other.

The battles between Sapp & Farve remain as some of the finest memories of Sapp’s career.

The Buccaneers would induct Sapp into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor in 2013.

That same year Sapp would receive what some call the ultimate honor in football, being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot.
