Quarterbacks normally try to run from Warren Sapp but they were happy to be embraced by a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013.

Sapp, who will be formally inducted to the club of immortals in an enshrinement ceremony Saturday night, posed with about 100 other Hall of Famers Friday in front of the museum in Canton, Ohio.

After posing for the picture, Sapp was making nice with quarterbacks such as John Elway and Roger Staubach. Immediately after the photo, he shook hands with former Oilers running back Earl Campbell, then pulled out his cellphone to take photos with Steelers defensive lineman 'Mean" Joe Greene and Lions running back Barry Sanders.

He laughed it up with John Maddon, Floyd Little and Willie Lanier. Then it was off to the Ray Nitchke luncheon with his presenter and daughter, Mercedes, 15, as well as the other Hall of Famers.

"This is the perfect address to be at,'' Sapp said. "Twenty-one, twenty-one George Halas Drive.''

Sapp will be the next-to-last player from the Class of 2013 to be enshrined in Saturday night's ceremony, just ahead of Cris Carter. The order is Jonathan Ogden, Dave Robinson, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp, Sapp and Carter.
