Former-Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp was one of seven selected as the Class of 2013 to be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. Sapp will be joined Bill Parcells, Jonathan Ogden, Cris Carter, Larry Allen, Curley Culp and Dave Robinson in the induction.

Sapp, 40, was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection during his nine-year career with the Buccaneers and helped the team to win Super Bowl XXXVII before he left to join the Oakland Raiders in 2004. He was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 1999.

Parcells and Carter each had short stints with the Miami Dolphins to finish their professional careers, while Brown played one season with the Buccaneers to finish his career after spending the 16 seasons prior with the Raiders.

The official enshrinement ceremony for the Class of 2013 is scheduled for Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. ET at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio.
