Sapp said he’s “been a Deion Sanders fan since I was 12 years old,” according to the AP.

Sapp completed a background check through Colorado, according to the AP. He took a plea deal in 2015 after he “pleaded no contest in Las Vegas justice Court to one misdemeanor domestic violence charge” after “a scuffle with his former girlfriend,” according to ESPN, and he also was arrested for “assaulting and soliciting a prostitute” which he pleaded guilty to both charges and he completed a diversion program which dropped the solicitation charge, according to the AP.
