Warren Sapp somehow doesn't know who Cameron Heyward is

Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp had an interesting tweet last night, as he asked his followers who's No. 97 in reference to a graphic showcased by NBC to preview this Sunday night's game between the Steelers and Chargers.

No. 97 is of course Cameron Heyward, only one one of the best defensive lineman in the game. And actually, this season Heyward has been the best in the league. According to Pro Football Focus, Heyward is the highest-graded defender in football. PFF made sure to tweet Sapp this, as well.

Heyward also took notice of Sapp not being aware of who he is, as he tweeted to Sapp, "Bet!"

For some reason, it seems like Heyward is always being overlooked by national spectators. Just a few weeks ago, John Clayton completely discounted the fact that Heyward could be a future Hall of Famer. Clayton also said that Heyward isn't even the best defensive linemen on his own team, as he believes Stephon Tuitt is better.

Heyward, 32, is a four-time Pro Bowler and has been named All-Pro three times in his career (twice as first-team and once as second-team). If Heyward can get nominated for four more Pro Bowls and All-Pro honors, along with 30-40 more sacks, he should be a lock for the Hall of Fame. Maybe Sapp will know who he is then, even though he should know about Heyward currently.
