NFL Says Bounty "Evidence Is Overwhelming"
Saints quarterback Drew Brees described the NFL's evidence today in the bounty case so far as "hearsay" and "hypotheticals," not the definitive proof needed, the Associated Press reports. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello responded in an email to multiple media outlets that the evidence is overwhelming. "The investigation was thorough and includes statements from multiple sources with firsthand knowledge about the details of the program, corroborating documentation and other evidence," Aiello said. "The enforcement of the bounty rule is important to protect players that are put at risk by this kind of scheme. Certainly, Drew Brees would not want to be the target in a bounty scheme and that is why we must eliminate bounties from football."
