Timmy Jernigan has changed his number to 99 as a tribute to @WarrenSapp.

I’m just assuming Timmy Jernigan grew up watching Warren Sapp, and tries to model his game after him, and that’s why he’s changing his number. But Warren obviously wants no part in this, and I think it’s hilarious. But first off, why would Sapp have a problem with this? Maybe he just thinks he was so great that his number should be universally retired by all NFL teams. But honestly, what a dick. Someone wants to pay tribute to your game and you try to clown him on Twitter? Kind of fucked up. Still funny though, since you know, I’m not involved in any of this in the least.
