Warren Sapp Goes Lobstering, Gets Bitten By Shark In Florida Keys Instead

Pro Football Hall of Fame member Warren Sapp had a wee accident while lobstering in the Florida Keys and came away with a shark bite. Since his retirement from the NFL, Sapp has become a regular on charter boats, and he went out this week on a charter based out of Marathon in the Florida Keys. During the excursion, he was bitten on the arm by a shark while wrangling a lobster. Sapp is okay, but he now perhaps has the best fish story ever.

According to the Inquisitr, after so much negative news involving former football players like Johnny Manziel, who was fired from football before his career even started, it's nice to hear an exciting story that ends well. Luckily, Warren Sapp, a Florida native, is doing okay, and actually stayed on the boat after the shark bite.

"Warren Sapp attacked by a shark while lobstering," he wrote, adding the hashtag #epicbattle.

"The shark wanted the lobster just as bad as Sapp," he later wrote on Instagram. "Sapp got the lobster and the Shark got his lick in too."

Carlson explained that Sapp might need a few stitches, but after the bite, he kept on fishing.

"We bandaged it up, put some gauze on there, some black electrical tape and hit a couple more spots, then headed in."

"He was lobstering with me and a shark bit Sapp while he was grabbing the lobster. He's okay."

But in the end, it seems that Warren Sapp wanted the lobster more than the shark did. Sapp is taking the shark bite in stride, smiling for photos with family, friends, and fishing buddies. Sapp is recovering while enjoying his take from the lobster outing in the Florida Keys.
