Sapp has been cited for fifth-degree assault and careless driving, both misdemeanors, after a run-in with security at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.||||||| Officers were called Friday morning after police say Sapp and his 11-year-old son tried to enter the hospital through a closed entrance. The Star Tribune reports Sapp left his son with a hospital security guard, saying the boy's mother was inside and he had to go to work. Sapp allegedly pushed a security officer who tried to detain him in the parking ramp. Police Sgt. Bill Palmer says Sapp then chest-bumped a security officer who was standing in front of his vehicle.

Sapp's agent says his client has been traded to the Dolphins.||||||| Andy Simms tweeted the news on Wednesday. Sapp is entering his seventh season in the league. He played in all 16 games last season and started seven of them for the injured Antoine Winfield. With Winfield healthy, Sapp was competing with youngsters Asher Allen and Chris Cook for the nickel back job. He missed some time early in training camp because of dehydration and the Vikings are high on Allen, a second-year player, and Cook, a rookie from Virginia.

Sapp agreed to terms on a new contract with the Vikings on Tuesday.||||||| Sapp started a total of seven games last season while filling in for injured starter Antoine Winfield, totaling 25 tackles, two passes defensed and two forced fumbles during a particularly strong six-game stretch. He finished the regular season with 55 tackles, the most in his NFL seasons. Sapp served the rest of the season as the nickel back, and his presence this year will be important since Winfield and fellow starter Cedric Griffin are coming off injuries.
