Hargrove Says Coaches Told Him Deny Bounties Existence
Former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove wrote a signed declaration last month to the NFL, claiming coaches Gregg Williams and Joe Vitt instructed him to lie about a bounty program.
Hargrove’s affidavit was written on April 13, 2012. The NFL announced the suspensions of coaches Sean Payton, Gregg Williams, and Joe Vitt on March 22nd. It is unclear whether the NFL views Hargrove’s declaration as new information. If they do, another suspension could be coming for Vitt. He is currently suspended for the first six games of the regular season. If Hargrove’s information was already known by the NFL, than Vitt’s future is much more clear.
