It's Day 7 of training camp and Warren Sapp is in midseason form.
He was yapping it up with officials and poking fun at teammates at practice today.
Today's main target was Tony Stewart.
Not the NASCAR driver. Tony Stewart, the tight end the Raiders signed in the offseason from Cincinnati.
If you've never heard of Tony Stewart, don't worry, neither had Sapp.
So imagine his confusion when Stewart introduced himself as "T-Stew."
And Sapp was relentless. He asked where was "T-Stew" when the Raiders played the Bengals last season.
Sapp is as smart a football player you'll ever meet. He studies the game intently.
And he just didn't remember ever scouting "T-Stew."
He also rode Mike Williams about his weight.
Sapp told Williams if he's going to weigh 250, he might as well run block. He added he knew the trick Williams used on the scale - slightly lean against a wall - to make his weight lighter.
Sapp can have fun about weight, having dropped down to 282 from 334 last season.
There's never a boring moment in practice if Sapp is within earshot.
Other tidbits from Thursday's practice:
Zach Miller is catching everything. That's your starting tight end.
Daunte Culpepper is almost ready to take equal reps with Andrew Walter and Josh McCown. That's just a step closer to taking all the first-team reps.
Randal Williams rejoined the team after leaving on Sunday for personal reasons. His number has been given to "T-Stew", so Williams has no idea what the team's plans are for him.
I'd be worried too, if "T-Stew" had my number.
