WALNUT CREEK , Calif., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Oakland Raiders' tackle Warren Sapp, a seven-time Pro Bowler who has been considered one of the NFL's elite players, is retiring, it was reported Thursday.

The 35-year-old defensive star said he told Davis of his retirement plans by telephone.

All of Sapp's Pro Bowl appearances were as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He joined the Raiders in 2004.

Sapp finished with 96 1/2 sacks in his 13-year NFL career.
