Ex-Saints, Packers DT Anthony Hargrove Again Denies Role In Bounties
Anthony Hargrove, one of four NFL players to have his suspension temporarily lifted last week despite being part of what the league says was a bounty program conducted by members of the New Orleans Saints, continued to proclaim his innocence and said that the evidence against him "isn't very strong at all."
"I don't think any of the evidence they have against myself or any other players is strong," he said in an interview with ESPN's "Outside The Lines" on Friday. "And so I've taken a stand in the beginning and I continue to have the same stand, as innocent."
Hargrove, along with Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith and Scott Fujita, had their suspensions overturned last Friday by a federal court appeals panel, which ruled that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell must clarify his May 2 decision to suspend and fine the players to ensure no part of his decisions was based on salary-cap violations. That allowed the four players to play immediately. Hargrove is the only one of the four without a team, having been released by the Green Bay Packers during the preseason.
Hargrove said he didn't think the NFL's process, which saw him suspended for eight games in May, was fair.
"But I've just got to go by what the NFL does, and hopefully the truth will come, will come to the surface, and I'll be back to playing football," he said.
