Warren Sapp's #99 will be retired on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins

Stacy Revere

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made official what we have known for a while now: Warren Sapp will enter the Ring of Honor this year, joining Lee Roy Selmon, John McKay, Jimmie Giles and Paul Gruber as the only members. The Bucs established the Ring five years ago, and have added one player each year. The Bucs will hold the induction ceremony on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins on November 11, with his former head coach Jon Gruden in the booth.

Sapp was one of the most successful players in Buccaneers history, with seven Pro Bowls, six All-Pro selections and two All-Decade selections. He was the motor of the late '90s/early '00s Buccaneers, and was a key part of the 2002 Super Bowl team.

Not only will Sapp enter the Ring of Honor, but the Buccaneers will retire his famed number 99 during that same ceremony. Sapp will be just the second Buccaneer to have his number retired, with the late, great Lee Roy Selmon's number 63 being the only other number which will officially not be worn by anyone else in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform.
