On Thursday, the Baltimore Ravens tweeted that third year defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan from Florida State was changing his number to No. 99 in honor of Hall of Fame DT and Florida-native Warren Sapp.
Timmy Jernigan has changed his number to 99 as a tribute to @WarrenSapp.

Unfortunately, Sapp isn’t a fan of Jernigan.
A few hours after the Ravens tweeted the news, the former Tampa Bay Bucaneer responded:
@Ravens how do I stop this??

What’s shocking to me is that despite the fact that Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy and was fired from NFL Network after he solicited a prostitute, young players still want to respect him.
The following thread was pretty funny as well…
