Last week, Warren Sapp blasted his former Buccaneers teammate Keyshawn Johnson on Showtime’s Inside the NFL. On Wednesday night’s show, Sapp apologized.
“A week ago I took a shot at an old teammate of mine and I really felt like I crossed the line,” Sapp said. “My mother was watching that show and she gave me a buzz and said, ‘You know what, that’s wrong because you and that boy and the kids and all of your families have played together and won together and you’ve got to apologize.’
“And I said, ‘You’re right.’ I am so wrong for crossing that line with Key and I apologize to my man out there and good luck to you on your (ESPN) show.”
Sapp then sounded off on Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb for not knowing the overtime rules.
“When I heard him say it I almost passed out,” Sapp said. “I thought, ‘This will follow you for the rest of your career.’ Your legacy in the league, Donovan, will be throwing up in the Super Bowl, Rush Limbaugh and now, ‘I didn’t know there were ties in the NFL.’ “
