Jeremy Shockey continued to vent his displeasure with NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp and the league in general over accusations that he was an informant in the Saints bounty scandal that resulted in extensive penalties for the team.
Shockey continued to emphatically deny he said anything to the league and communicated that directly with Saints coach Sean Payton on Thursday. Shockey said he has not been contacted by anyone with the NFL regarding its apparent violation of league policy that whistleblowers not be identified.
Shockey said he has been contacted by multiple lawyers about filing a lawsuit over the matter.
“Is the league going to come down on their own people when someone does something so wrong and outrageous?” Shockey said. “There should be a standard for punishment, like getting suspended or fined or losing your job. If I say something about officials, the league fines me.
“This guy says something about me that’s not true and that he’s not supposed to say and what happens? Nothing. You’d think they would have done something to check it out. Heck, this guy [allegedly] hit a woman, got arrested and nothing happened to him.”
