Saints DT Remi Ayodele Doesn't Recall 'Pay Me My Money' Statement
The NFL has accused former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove of telling then-teammate Bobby McCray to "give me my money" -- a sign league investigators say shows that a bounty was in place -- during the NFC Championship Game in 2010 against the Minnesota Vikings, Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports. Saints defensive lineman Remi Ayodele was in the sideline huddle and seated near Hargrove when the remark allegedly was made, Ayodele, through his agent Jordan Woy, can't remember what was said. "He doesn't recall hearing the statement," Woy wrote in an e-mail. "It was made three years ago in the middle of a huge game." The league said Hargrove can be heard saying, "Bobby, pay me my money." Hargrove and his agent vehemently denied it was Hargrove who said those words. Hargrove is obscured for part of the brief statement in the video, blocked by Ayodele. With Ayodele claiming he can't remember what was said or who said it, the burden of proof remains on Hargrove to prove to the NFL that it wasn't him that said "give me my money." No other Saints players in that huddle have knowingly come forth to dispute or reinforce the league's claim that it was Hargrove.
