Cool Rumor Mill Has Sapp, Tank Headed to Colts

Posted Aug 7th 2007

Booger McFarland's potentially season-ending knee surgery has sent the Indianapolis Colts scrambling for replacements, and the rumor mill is already working overtime.

Dungy insisted "we won't leave any stone unturned" in monitoring the NFL's waiver wire and available free agents.

Two names that likely will surface are Oakland's Warren Sapp and former Chicago Bears standout Tank Johnson. Sapp, 34, was a Pro Bowler for Dungy at Tampa Bay, and it's been speculated he'll be released if the Raiders go on a youth kick. Johnson, 25, started in the Bears' Super Bowl loss to the Colts, and is available after being released in June.

Johnson, however, has also been suspended for eight games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for conduct policy violations, so he wouldn't be able to help the Colts until November at the earliest.

Sapp makes a bit more sense here, given that he played for Tony Dungy in Tampa Bay, but for now, he's still a Raider. If Sapp stays in Oakland, would the Colts spend even a 7th-round pick to acquire 34-year-old defensive lineman who may have one year left, if that?

True, with all the supplemental picks they're expected to get, they might consider it. For about five minutes. Over a beer at the pub. If it's one of those high-gravity numbers, they might pull the trigger on that deal. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that, though.
