Sapp signed with the Jets in 2011 and after spending the early part of the season on the Practice Squad, was put on the Jets active roster. Going into 2012, Sapp is healthy and poised to show his talents in New York.

Q: You were one of the most highly recruited defensive players in 2006, what was that process like of taking visits to all these elite colleges? Also what was it like for you and your family knowing you got to go to any school in the country for free?

Sapp: Well first and farmost it was a dream come true. I must admit I was shocked at first at how many schools i talked to and had the chance to visit. To be able to go to school free was a blessing me and my family and we enjoyed every bit of the experiance

Q: You were teammates with the late Gaines Adams in your freshman year at Clemson, what was it like being teammates with him, and what do you remember most about him?

Sapp: To play behind such a great great player was just a blessing, because I got the chance to learn from him on the field and also off the field. He was such a great person and taught me alot about the game and about life.

Q: What was draft day like for you? What are some of the moments you remember about that day, and when you found out you were getting drafted?

Sapp: Well to be even in the NFL draft was just a dream come true for me. I didnt get drafted where i thought I would, but just getting drafted was enough for me. I was jus thankful someone take a chance on me.

Q: What has been your most memorable game in your football career, at any level?

Sapp: My senior year when we played G-tech for the first time and we were down by like 21. We came together as a team and came back and put up a great fight.
