“I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand,” Smith said Tuesday on NFL.com’s “Dave Dameshek Football Program,” although he didn’t name the Saints player. “I was going out-of-bounds, and the guy went for my ankle. I said, ‘Hey, man, cut that out.’ He’s like, ‘Well, we get fined if we don’t go after your legs when you go out of bounds.’ … And actually this past year, this last game when we played them, I had a little conversation with Gregg Williams. … He took responsibility, he was saying it wasn’t right, but that’s who he was.”
This is certainly a new twist to the Saints bounty scandal. We knew they were getting paid to take players out, but also fining them for not trying to hurt another play is just another piece of this puzzle.
I wonder if the play below was bounty related.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
