Sapp To Donate Brain For Concussion Research

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp said he's been suffering from memory loss, and will donate his brain to concussion research. 

In a video statement on YouTube posted for "Player's Tribune," Sapp said he believes that his time in the league is contributing to his problems.  Sapp said his brain will go to the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

Sapp, 44, played 13 seasons in the NFL.  He was drafted by the Bucs in 1995, and played for the club until 2003.  He was an integral part of the Bucs' 2003 Superbowl victory.  Sapp finished his career with the Oakland Raiders from 2004-2007.

Sapp said he wants youth leagues to end tackle football until kids reach high school age.
