Warren Sapp Says He Used to Save $5K for Teammates to Protect Against NFL Fines

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 2, 2013

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp spoke on the Dan Patrick Show and was asked to discuss the Broncos high-powered offense under Peyton Manning

Sapp goes on to explain that there's no way to take away the middle of the field and that the only way to do that is to put a solid hit on a receiver. Sapp explains: 

“There’s no way to get in their faces like back in the day.  You know like New England used to do Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison back in the day.  You can’t do that.  You can’t ride them down the field.” 

“I used to have $5,000 waiting for anybody that hit somebody and got a fine because we needed to protect the middle of the field.”

Patrick then asks Sapp how many times he did this during his career, to which Sapp replies, "at least six."

Hat tip to Pro Football Zone for the find.
