Warren Sapp was one of the more unique personalities in the NFL in the past two decades, so it’s fitting that his bust at the Pro Football Hall of Fame will be unique. Sapp’s Hall of Fame bust will feature him wearing braids for his hairstyle:

When Sapp entered the league in 1995, he had a little bit of that ’90s fade with waves in the front. Then from 1997-2001, Sapp rocked the braids. It was during that time that Sapp won Defensive Player of the Year and was at the top of his game. He made the Pro Bowl each of those years and was a first-team All-Pro player for three of them.
By the time the 2002 season started, Sapp had a shaved head, which he has gone with since.
While Sapp did not have braids for most of his playing career, he sported them during the best years of his career.
And now we have one with braids to go along with a bust with a bandanna from two years ago.
