Charismatic and loquacious, Sapp is a Super Bowl Champion, Pro-Football Hall of Famer, Sports Media Analyst, Author, Social Media Enthusiast, Entrepreneur, Disruptor and Philanthropist. He is recognized as one of the best defensive linemen in NFL history.
In the 1995 NFL Draft, Sapp was chosen 12th overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and it took him just two years to be named to his first Pro Bowl in 1997. He was named Defensive Player of the Year (1999), NFL All Decade Team and recorded 77 sacks, the second highest in team history. In 2002, Sapp led the Buccaneers-as the league’s top defensive team-to capture the NFC South Title with the best record in team history (12-4). The Bucs went on to defeat the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.
In 2004, Sapp signed with the Oakland Raiders. After an injury-plagued season in ’05, Sapp returned to his All-Pro form in 2006. Sapp played one more season with the Raiders in ’07 before announcing his retirement on Jan. 4, 2008. After 13 years in the NFL and an accumulation of injuries, Sapp suffered from chronic pain and stiffness. In search of an alternative to anti-inflammatory pills, Sapp discovered Be Trū Organics BODY Cream, found relief and became a part of the company.
