Watch: Buccaneers Great Sapp Working with the Defense


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the middle of their OTAs this week. The team is gearing up for what appears to be Tom Brady’s last ride. After finishing the 2021 season with a heartbreaking loss to the Rams, the Buccaneers defense is looking for redemption.

When you want more out of your defense, you tend to use examples like former players and how they played their position. Tuesday, the Bucs went a step further with that concept. If you want players to become dominant what better way than to have one of the greatest defenders in Buccaneers history teach them.

Hall of Famer, Super Bowl champion and arguably the greatest player in Bucs history Warren Sapp joined the team’s coaching staff this week to work with the defense.

“[Warren Sapp and I] have a good relationship, and we wanted to bring him in to teach the [defensive] line a few things,” Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles stated. “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.”

Warren Sapp is the Buccaneers all-time sack leader with 77 career sacks. He also is a six time All-Pro, a Super Bowl champion, 1999 Defensive Player of the Year and seven Pro Bowls.
