During a 40-minute visit with Mike Francesa on WFAN to promote his new book “Sapp Attack,” the former Bucs and Raiders defensive tackle maintained his belief that Jeremy Shockey snitched on the Saints.
“I stick by my source,” Sapp said. “Some of the information that was given to them, he was one of them.”
He also confirmed to Francesa that he was punished by NFL Network.
“I guess that’s what you call it,” Sapp said when asked about being reprimanded. “30 days at home.”
Count Francesa as someone who believes Shockey could have snitched on the Saints. The host responded to Sapp’s allegation by saying, “it wouldn’t surprise me.”
Sapp proved that he really hasn’t learned from the original incident. If he realized it was wrong to make that allegation on such a big stage, then he wouldn’t be repeating it now. It’s also noteworthy that he seemed to revise his original accusation.
The way Sapp first presented his allegation against Shockey, he made it seem like the tight end WAS the reason the Saints were investigated and punished by the NFL. In his interview with Francesa, he softened his stance and said the tight end was only one of the sources, which doesn’t make Shockey look as bad.
Either way, Sapp still looks foolish for continuing to slander Shockey months after being punished and apologizing.
