After his release Ricky worked his butt off to get his knee right. Finally, after months of hard work and training, Ricky succeeded. His knee no longer gave him problems and he was ready to roll. Sapp was signed to the New York Jets’ practice squad on October 31, 2011. He was released on November 21. When he was re-signed to the practice squad on November 28, he never looked back. Sapp was promoted to the team’s active roster on December 29 and the rest is history. Now completely healthy, Sapp is excited and having fun again. Like Aaron Maybin did last season, Ricky is motivated and ready to show doubters that he can truly live up to his potential. Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine envisions big things for Ricky this upcoming season. “He’s a guy that’s come out and definitely increased our team speed up front,” said Pettine. Ricky was a phenomenal pass rusher in college. While in camp with the Eagles, they converted him to outside linebacker (he played defensive end in college). With the Jets, Sapp will be an outside linebacker as well. In fact, when Calvin Pace missed practice recently, who started in his place? Look no further than the comeback kid, Ricky SappRicky Sapp
