King: Saints Vilma Offered $10,000 to Knock Favre Out of NFC Title Game

More and more crazy stories are coming out about the latest NFL saga involving the New Orleans Saints and their bounty hunting they did when Gregg Williams was the defensive coordinator.

According to Peter King of, a club source who was briefed on the Saints bounty investigation late Friday afternoon, the most alarming finding was one involving Brett Favre.

Before the 2009 NFC Championship Game, Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered any defensive teammate $10,000 in cash to knock then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre out of the game.

Favre was hit viciously several times in the game. Favre told King Friday evening: “I’m not pissed. It’s football. I don’t think anything less of those guys.”

The details of Vilma’s offer were in a report to the 32 NFL owners, sent out by the league to detail further what the league’s 50,000-page investigation found.

    Saints? That you are not. It was announced that the defenses of the New Orleans Saints took “bounties” out on particular players for cash bonuses. Not enough details has been brought to light on this matter but it does not sound like there were any standards attached to so called “Bounties”. I accept nothing less than revoking their Super Bowl Trophy. Read more about this subject here Visit GridIronGuts
