Warren Sapp to donate brain for medical research

MIAMI (AP) — Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Sapp is donating his brain for medical research.

Sapp announced Tuesday that his brain will go to the Concussion Legacy Foundation after his death.

The 44-year-old said in an essay on the Players’ Tribune website that he has started to feel the effects of the many hits he took during his 13-year NFL career. He said he’s specifically become concerned about his memory. Sapp said he hopes his donation can help prevent concussions and permanent brain damage for future football players.

Sapp played defensive tackle from 1995-2003 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he earned seven trips to the Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl ring in 2002. He played for the Oakland Raiders from 2004-2007.
