Warren Sapp is out as an analyst on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" after CBS and Showtime declined to renew the former defensive tackle's contract.
Sapp, a seven-time Pro Bowler and current NFL Network analyst, was hired to appear on on "Inside the NFL" in August of 2008, though he took a break when he appeared on "Dancing With the Stars."
Sapp's name has been in the news a lot recently -- on Twitter he accused Jeremy Shockey of being a "snitch" in the Saints bounty scandal. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell later refuted that claim (as did CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman) and though the NFL Network said he "clearly crossed the line," they did not fire him for his comments.
It is not yet known whether or not Sapp's contract with the NFL Network will be renewed when it reportedly expires in August.
