NFL Hall of Fame: Warren Sapp through the years

Warren Sapp's journey from college to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in pictures.

Warren Sapp was the cornerstone of the late 1990s and early 2000s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The dominant defenses flourished because the prototypical three-technique dominated in the trenches and forced his teammates to play at a higher level.

On Saturday, the big man will be just the second Tampa Bay Buccaneer to ever enter the Hall of Fame, after the late, great Lee Roy Selmon. Sapp's big mouth and abrasive off-field ways may not have endeared him to everyone, but he was one of the best players the Buccaneers have ever seen.

Click through the gallery above to see him in all his glory. Sacks, tackles, smiles, frowns and tears -- it's all there. From his days with the Miami Hurricanes, through the glory years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the frustration with the Oakland Raiders and his days as a broadcaster.
