As many of you have already read, Warren Sapp was arrested for soliciting a prostitute and assault. This is not the first time that Sapp has been in trouble with the law and it is safe to say that it won’t be the last time. It will, however, be the last time that it happens while he is employed by NFL Network. Everyone’s favorite channel terminated the contract of Warren Sapp amid his latest legal troubles.
Back in 2011, the Chargers signed Eric Weddle to a very lucrative contract extension to keep in San Diego for quite some time while paying him handsomely. Sapp didn’t approve of the move and took to social media to voice his opinion on the matter.
Four years later, Eric and his agent, David Canter, had yet to forget the incident and it was now time for Weddle and company to respond via Twitter.
Below is the initial tweet from Sapp and a response from Weddle.

Although Eric’s Twitter account is run by Canter, I can only imagine the smile on his face. He has been one of the best free safeties in the NFL for the last five years. Some could argue that he is the best.
Regardless of Warren Sapp’s ignorant comment in 2011, I can speak on behalf of all of the intelligent Charger fans that are ecstatic that the former Charger General Manager, he who must not be named, locked up Weddle with a sizable contract.
Entering the 2015 season, this is the last year of his current contract. Look for him to be restructured and extended.
