The defensive tackle became a first ballot NFL Hall of Famer last February and will be inducted into the HOF on August 3d in Canton, Ohio. He will also have his famous number 99 retired when the Bucs play host to the Miami Dolphins in a Monday night game next season.

Sapp was an NFL All Decade Player for the 1990s and 2000s and seven time Pro Bowl selectee. He ranks second in the NFL for defensive tackles.
