One of the NFL Network’s analysts has gotten into some hot water. Hall of Famer Warren Sapp was arrested Monday morning for soliciting a prostitute and for assault, according to Deadspin. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Sapp had been arrested.
The arrest, which was first reported by TMZ, occurred in Phoenix where the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle was on location covering Super Bowl XLIX. A sergeant with the Phoenix Police Department told Deadspin that Sapp was arrested for allegedly assaulting two women at a downtown hotel after an argument about money. The police picked up Sapp at the hotel early Monday morning and charged him with the two misdemeanors.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, the NFL Network suspended Sapp indefinitely without pay. An NFL Network spokesperson stated that the suspension is pending the outcome of the ongoing police investigation. Sapp has also been removed from the network’s talent page. Deitsch later reported that his contract with the network has been terminated.

Perhaps best of all, App State misses both Arkansas State and Troy on the conference schedule. (Well, that’s “best of all” for the Mountaineers, but not necessarily for football fans.) And none of their four conference road opponents projects better than 113th in S&P+. (I assume Idaho will be better than the projected 119th, but App State is still an obvious favorite there.)
