On Wednesday afternoon, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive end Warren Sapp said Richie Incognito once unleashed a racist tirade towards him, which included kicking Sapp in the head.
The Hall of Fame defender tried to play his career off as angelic during his appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, but former teammate and current ESPN analyst says Sapp was quite the bully himself:
“Chidi Ahanotu played with me in Tampa Bay and I used to watch Warren Sapp do some similar things to Chidi Ahanotu,” Johnson said. “Now I’m saying this on the record – and it’s going to go all over the country after I say this. I used to watch him try to bully Chidi Ahanotu, okay? Because he felt he was more superior than Chidi. So one day, you know what Ahanotu did? He got up and he told him, ‘Get your you-know-what in the middle of the floor right now. I’m tired of it.’”
Ahanotu confirmed the story, though, did say he didn’t feel he was bullied as he always stood up for himself.
I’m not sure anybody would ever believe Sapp was as angelic as he wanted to come off – though – he’s by no stretch some over the top offender either.
A bit funny Johnson called him out on it though.
