Warren Sapp’s Ex-Teammate

I Never Witnessed Sapp

Offer Cash for Dirty Hits

Warren Sapp’s claim that he funded a $5,000 bounty program during his playing days is starting to sound like BS … ‘cause one of his most high-profile teammates says he NEVER saw it happen.

Sapp went on Dan Patrick's show this week and said he “used to have $5,000 waiting for anybody who hit somebody and got a fine” during his time with the Buccaneers. He also claimed to have paid out the bounty “at least six times.” 

But TMZ spoke with Keyshawn Johnson, who shared a locker room with Sapp for four years in Tampa Bay, and Key tells us he never saw 99 engage in any sort of Bounty activity. 

“I didn't witness it, nor have I ever heard of it.” Keyshawn says. 

Still, Johnson admits there’s a chance he was just out of the loop ... saying, “Because of the type of person [Sapp] is, it wouldn't be farfetched that he would do something like that.  I wouldn't put it past him.”

I don't believe it. Warren likes to stir up stuff and get attention always did. With cocaine convictions, saying shockey was the snitch on bountygate, bankruptcy. I believe he prolly joked with dbrooks and simeon rice about it but nothing ever was paid out. Hall Of Famer for sure best qb rushing sack man defense tackle in the decade. But loves to stir shlt up.
