Former Raiders defensive lineman Warren Sapp was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2013 Class.
Sapp joins six others in the 2013 class: Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells and Dave Robinson.
Sapp played four seasons while donning the Silver & Black (2004-2007), recording 19.5 sacks in 58 starts. Sapp was more dominant during his nine-year tenure for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he recorded 77 sacks in his nine seasons.
The defensive tackle earned seven Pro Bowl selections, named All-Pro four times and was named a part of the 1990 and 2000 NFL All-Decade Teams.
On another note, former Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown will have to wait another year in hopes of making it next year after missing out the past two years due to Cris Carter being selected this year.
