Warren Sapp says he apologized to Jeremy Shockey
After publicizing his baseless claims that Jeremy Shockey was the snitch in the Saints bounty scandal and also somehow keeping his job with NFL Network, Warren Sapp has apologized to the man he threw under the bus. Or so he says.
Sapp was a guest on Toucher and Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston recently and said that he apologized to Shockey when the two ran into each other not long after the whole ordeal involving them began. While Sapp still stands by his “reporting,” he said he was sorry for the way he handled it.
“I saw Jeremy about a week after it all went down at a Heat game … and I told him, I said, ‘I apologize for putting it on the street level and making it derogatory towards you,’” Sapp said (via Sports Radio Interviews). “The information that was passed to me, I stand by my source, but I hate that I put it on a level, that wasn’t the way it should be. … That’s what I apologized for, because I put it on a way lower level than it should’ve been. It was something serious that never shoulda went on and stuff like that. So that’s the problem I have with myself and what I said to him.”
Sapp also added that he believes he and Shockey are on proper terms now.
“The two times I’ve seen him I haven’t had a problem with him, but if he does we can go out in the grass and get it over with,” Sapp said. “I don’t have a problem with getting my knuckles a little scarred up.”
Now, we still have yet to hear from Shockey if Sapp’s attempted apology was substantial enough for him. If it’s not, we should buy air time for this grass fight Sapp appears eager for.
