Warren Sapp Not Likely to be Back with NFL Network

Warren Sapp’s employment with the NFL Network is likely over, according to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe who cites two league sources.

Sapp has not been on the network since the week of his tweets and on-air comments that labeled tight end Jeremy Shockey as the “snitch’’ in the Saints bounty scandal – something Roger Goodell said was not true.

Sapp’s next on-air appearance has not been determined, according to a source. Sapp recently filed for bankruptcy, according to TMZ.com, and the documents said his NFL Network contract, which pays him $540,000 annually, expires in August.

Sapp’s contract is not expected to be renewed, a league source said. A network spokesman said discipline is an internal matter and wouldn’t confirm Sapp’s status.
