Warren Sapp asked Michael Strahan to 'forgive' him

Warren Sapp created headlines in New York when he ripped Michael Strahan's Hall of Fame candidacy. Strahan fired back and then Sapp offered on the Jim Rome Show to fight Strahan and "have a dose of it."

But it appears the feud might be over. Sapp said Sunday that he saw Strahan on Saturday night and asked him to forgive him.

"I saw Michael Strahan last night on my way going to [see] Derrick Brooks," Sapp said. "I walked up to him, I grabbed him and hugged him and wouldn't let him go. I said please forgive me."

Now Sapp hasn't said whether Strahan actually agreed to do that but at least he's making an effort here.

His comments were pretty personal and he definitely looked like the big loser in all of this.

"When you stack it up, he only has four straight Pro Bowls and a mythical sack record that y'all still walk around like it's something to be praised," Sapp said earlier in the week. "I mean y'all have got to get off your high horse in New York and speak about the real. And when you really measure him up, he comes up short."

Strahan didn't make it too personal when he fired back at Sapp but he did have a pretty strong, sarcastic response.

"I am, I'm all hype," Strahan continued. "I lasted 15 years, all hype. I had 141½ career sacks, all hype. I was always a starter. I played left end, and that made me get sacks. My coaches kept putting me in the game because they felt it gave us the best chance to win, and that was all hype."

Whatever the case it's irrelevant because Strahan made it in the Hall of Fame. And he beat out Tony Dungy, who was Sapp's coach and enters with Derrick Brooks who was Sapp's teammate.

Strahan didn't speak with the media after the announcement of the 2014 Hall of Fame class.
