Steve Smith claims Saints player admitted targeting him

Steve Smith, Roman Harper AP

Panthers receiver Steve Smith says that when news broke of the Saints bounty scandal, he wasn’t the least bit surprised because he was previously told by a Saints player that dirty plays were encouraged.

In fact, Smith said on the Dave Dameshek Football Program on NFL.com that a Saints player took a cheap shot at him during a game, and when Smith objected, the player told him that he had to do it because on the Saints’ defense, you get fined if you don’t take cheap shots.

“I always knew Gregg Williams and his defenses would do that,” Smith said. “I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand. I was going out of bounds, and the guy went for my ankle. I said, ‘Hey, man, cut that out.’ He’s like, ‘Well, we get fined if we don’t go after your legs when you go out of bounds.’ . . . And actually this past year, this last game when we played them, I had a little conversation with Gregg Williams. . . . He took responsibility, he was saying it wasn’t right, but that’s who he was and that’s who he is.”

Although some people will be inclined to believe any negative story that comes out about the Saints these days, Smith’s claim doesn’t make a lot of sense. Why didn’t he name the Saints player who told him that? Why did he wait until now to say anything about it? Why didn’t Smith mention it last season, when he was involved in an altercation with Saints safety Roman Harper, who hit him in the end zone after Smith scored a touchdown?

Smith’s claims also don’t align with what we’ve previously heard about the Saints’ bounty program: Smith is saying that Saints players were fined for not taking cheap shots, which isn’t the same thing as being rewarded with bonuses for taking opposing players out. Smith, who has a habit of sucker punching teammates, also isn’t exactly the guy who has the best case for taking the high road when it comes to cheap shots.

So as we add it to the pile of negative stories coming out about the Saints this offseason, Smith’s is a story that should be met with skepticism.

    this claim seems sketchy,but wouldn’t surprise me if it was true.

  2. jenniferxxx says: Apr 25, 2012 6:57 AM

    Everyone knew about it … except Drew Brees of course.

  3. cakemixa says: Apr 25, 2012 6:58 AM

    Steves Smith knows a thing or two about cheap shots. After all, hasn’t he punched his own teammates on more than one occasion?

  4. jdoub732 says: Apr 25, 2012 6:59 AM

    all of a sudden now she wanna come out with some lies. Your a diva nobody believed you

  5. demsaintsboyz says: Apr 25, 2012 7:03 AM

    Now we all know Steve Smith has a high temper, if someone was trying to injure you , you wouldn’t just say man cut it out like a lil girl. Who’s next with a made up story.

  6. bucrightoff says: Apr 25, 2012 7:04 AM

    I wouldn’t mess with a guy who punches his own teammates in the face

  7. GG Eden says: Apr 25, 2012 7:05 AM

    All I know is NFC South divisional games vs the Saints are going to be very interesting this season.

  8. Punk says: Apr 25, 2012 7:07 AM

    What does he gain by lying?

  9. lgbarn says: Apr 25, 2012 7:09 AM

    Steve Smith is a piece of poo but Gregg Williams is a bigger piece of poo so I believe Steve Smith.

  10. SeenThisB4 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:09 AM

    A preposterous fabrication from a known mule.

  11. dawglb says: Apr 25, 2012 7:15 AM

    Saints……..in name only. I hope they blow for years to come. Your feel-good story is over New Orleans!

  12. weekendatberniemadoffs says: Apr 25, 2012 7:16 AM

    by the way, that photo was taken 5 yards deep in the endzone, 5 seconds after steve scored.

  13. truthfactory says: Apr 25, 2012 7:22 AM

    Anyone who doesnt believe these allegations, just pop in the NFC championship game with Favre. They were diving at his ankles all game.

    The denials are almost as bad as the crime. Fess up so we can all just move on.

  14. jluns275 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:22 AM

    Drew Brees will require an explanation there, Mr. Smith.

  15. paulsmith107 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:26 AM

    This makes zero sense. Fined for not taking cheap shots lol really I can just hear the pre game speech. Okay guys let’s get as many personal fouls as possible if you don’t get at least one 15 yarder fined. How stupid and you clowns feed right into it this is really a nonissue talk like this happens in every sport at every level. My little league coach used to tell us to go out and kill the other team he wasn’t put in jail for murder for hire lol and we act as if the saints knocked the most people out of games or were one of the most penalized teams they weren’t. Steve smith is an idiot and for the record going for his ankles is laughable at best why not the knees or the head the ankles. Okay guys I want you to go after deangelo Williams wrists ha ha ha

  16. jackers252 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:26 AM

    Yeah, I’m sure they went out for tea after the game, too. Steve Smith is one of the nastier players in the league, always getting into it after the whistle or jawing the entire time.

    I’m sure if I were a CB playing against him and had to listen to him run his mouth non-stop I’d put some “remember me?” hits on him as well.

  17. metalhead65 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:28 AM

    so we shouldn’t believe him because he did not name the player but we should believe all the stories you print because of your unnamed scources?

  18. electionconfidential says: Apr 25, 2012 7:28 AM

    I don’t think you have a solid basis for calling Smith a liar. You have no idea what he was told. Maybe you’re a liar yourself so you expect that out of others, but I didn’t appreciate or value your commentary. I think you should have hard evidence before you call a man a liar.

  19. macbull says: Apr 25, 2012 7:30 AM

    This supports the players defense, that they were following orders…

    “Smith said. “I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand. I was going out of bounds, and the guy went for my ankle. I said, ‘Hey, man, cut that out.’ He’s like, ‘Well, we get fined if we don’t go after your legs when you go out of bounds.’ . . . And actually this past year, this last game when we played them, I had a little conversation with Gregg Williams. . . . He took responsibility, he was saying it wasn’t right, but that’s who he was and that’s who he is.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The key here, the Saints player saying he would be “fined” if he did not go after Steve Smith’s ankles.

    There is another side to this story that is being ignored by Goodell and the NFL.

  20. marat28051988 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:30 AM

    Smith crybaby. I do not know as it is possible to injure the person a usual push. Especially he before this push behaved animal for what forfeited

  21. theytukrjobs says: Apr 25, 2012 7:38 AM

    That is what they do. They take cheap shots at the best players on the opposing team. Granted Smith could easily be making this up, but does anyone really doubt that those dirty d-bags wouldn’t go after one of the Panthers’ best players?

  22. Scott says: Apr 25, 2012 7:39 AM

    Everyone knows Steve Smith isn’t Mr Wonderful, but really, he has nothing to gain by saying this stuff. Give me a good reason why he’d open this can of worms other… You know, other than him being an a-hole.

  23. totallyuselessme says: Apr 25, 2012 7:44 AM

    Eh.. I don’t know if this guy’s ever actually spoken with Steve Smith, but the guy’s pretty well known for speaking his mind to the fullest. But he’s not a guy that strikes me as a liar.

    Why wouldn’t he bring it up then? Probably because he wasn’t being asked about it then. He probably didn’t think it was so huge a deal. Not that he was thrilled about it (who would be?), but people take cheapshots all the time.

    The cat’s out of the bag now anyway, and somebody probably asked it about it.

  24. sportsmeccabi says: Apr 25, 2012 7:46 AM

    Ha, y’all actually believe Steve smith said “cut it out”?

    He altered it for the purpose of the interview, he probably said something more along the lines of: “do that again and I’m going to take you out back after the game and ____”

    Y’all fill in whatever threatening message you feel like.

  25. jmi11er says: Apr 25, 2012 7:52 AM

    Why would he lie Michael?

  26. xxwhodatxx says: Apr 25, 2012 7:55 AM

    Oh Steve Smith says so, must be true. So you get fined from the league if you do and the team if you don’t? Makes absolutly no sense to do that.

  27. dirtmcgirt24 says: Apr 25, 2012 8:02 AM

    I wish the media would, within the course of being critical of what people say, acknowledge that 99% of the time, people are quoted when they are asked a question by the media, not because they’ve called a press conference to express their thoughts.

    Why didn’t Smith say something previously? Because there previously wasn’t a public investigation causing every football “journalist” to ask every player their thoughts on the scandal.

  28. dmatt777 says: Apr 25, 2012 8:03 AM

    Liars,liar pants on fire. Are you kidding me? Geez…humanity, what the hell is happenin’? Why don’t we all just jump on da bandwagon and hang the Saints for some of these ridiculous allegations. Talk about beating folks when they are down. Craziness.

  29. duanethomas says: Apr 25, 2012 8:10 AM

    Hes’s lying.

  30. someidiotfromouthereintheprojects says: Apr 25, 2012 8:11 AM

    steve smith has the biggest target on his back in the nfc south concerning the taints and that was widely known long before the bountygate stuff came to light. but here come the cute “punch a teammate in the face” jokes.

  31. vaphinfan says: Apr 25, 2012 8:17 AM

    You see guys not everything was bad about the bounty scandel!!

  32. really2011 says: Apr 25, 2012 8:20 AM

    Makes perfect sense to me. Steve is essentially saying that the system was pushed by G. Dub and the players were “coerced” into using it. Sounds a lot like the NFLPA reasoning.

    Maybe this story helps the NFLPA cement it’s position on little to no player suspensions.

    Right, wrong, or indifferent – very few players (save for a couple of Vikings not named Favre) seem outraged by this so it either isn’t as over the top as described or a little more commonplace. In either case the players may be banning together to push this off on the coaches.

    Should be interesting. In terms of the NFC South games being interesting – not sure that any fan should actually believe that the players found out about this at the same time that we did. If the Saints were playing obvious dirty football – the intensity would have been amped already. The refs on the other hand – different story.

    Please tell me you’re not a “dealer”

  34. saint4life says: Apr 25, 2012 8:21 AM

    no way this is true, G Williams wouldnt just take out his ankles. If there is any player who needs a remember shot its Steve Smith

  35. fballguy says: Apr 25, 2012 8:22 AM

    Breaking news…Per Sean Payton, Greg Williams also forced his players to rip the tags off of hotel mattresses.

  36. mojosmagic says: Apr 25, 2012 8:22 AM

    I will always hate the Saints and root against them.

    If you’re scratching your head think WTF?
    Then you’re not who I think you are… Have you made a new movie lately

  38. beeronthefridge says: Apr 25, 2012 8:25 AM

    In a related story, Drew Brees demanded a recorded signed confession.

  39. thecrazyasianinseccountry says: Apr 25, 2012 8:26 AM

    Oops !!! Sorry @jenniferxxx
    Well out of bound on my last comment!

  40. The Prophet says: Apr 25, 2012 8:26 AM

    I’m not surprised he didn’t name the guy, after all this player at least admitted to Smith what the deal was basically saying it wasn’t personal that’s just how their coach rolls. so Smith doesn’t have a beef with that actual player and respects that he told him the truth, so why pay that back by getting him personally in trouble and exposing him to other Saints players who will want revenge against that guy for “revealing” stuff. After all we saw the backlash against Shockey for folks believing he blew the whistle.

  41. haywoodjeffries says: Apr 25, 2012 8:42 AM

    Cause a groupie bent the truth and told a lie

  42. NationalFlagFootballLeague says: Apr 25, 2012 8:43 AM

    Well of course hated Saints rival Steve Smith wouldn’t lie

  43. longdrivesaint says: Apr 25, 2012 8:43 AM

    Another idiotic player who sucker punched his own player in the face, runs his suck anytime he doesn’t get the ball and over the top trash talker. Why didn’t he bring this up during or shortly after the game to the media? Another ignorant diva trying to pile on. Your time is coming buddy. Sept. 16th in your house again. And you can tell your stadium guy to can it with the growling panther.

  44. falconsfan says: Apr 25, 2012 8:44 AM

    …and the price for Drew Brees just goes up a little more. There’s only 1 guy that can save the Saints PR nightmare, there’s a reason Brees hasn’t signed yet.

  45. bullcharger says: Apr 25, 2012 9:01 AM

    No doubt they went at Smith’s ankles out of bounds. That is consistent with what we have heard thus far, including in Williams speech.

    That said, I don’t believe any details of the conversations Smith described. That is what Smith thinks he heard in hindsight after the bounty story broke. It’s not likely what actually happened.

  46. addict2sport says: Apr 25, 2012 9:02 AM

    If either of those conversations took place, we all would’ve heard about it before now because Smith would’ve gone ballistic. He’s the Metta World Peace of the NFL. Ask Anthony Bright and Ken Lucas.

  47. csmit44 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:03 AM

    I mean really people, think about this for half a second. How in the blue hell could the Saints actually “fine” a player for NOT playing dirty…and players just be cool with their defensive coordinator taking money from them. These guys hold out for contracts but they’re going to let their coaches start taking money from them???

  48. nathanbetz91 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:04 AM

    Don’t flatter yourself, you’re not good enough for that to be true

  49. nolarules says: Apr 25, 2012 9:04 AM

    seems believeable to me. Williams and the Saints denied this going on to the league for years, but to a model citizen such as Steve Smith, they had no problem opening up about it. Yeah right.
    and once again, where is the proof? where were all of the personal fouls for diving at ankles out of bounds these past few seasons? you people do realize that they throw flags for that? They threw a flag for the ten minute after the touchdown was scored cheap shot that Harper took on him last season. But anyone who watched that game knew that was not for a bounty but because Smith was making Harper look like a fool all game and certainly telling him about it.
    But again, just blindly believe everything negative about the Saints. Certainly don’t believe those lying eyes of yours.

  50. nje22 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:07 AM

    Steve Smith is such a dickhead I bet every team has a bounty on him.

  51. csmit44 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:17 AM

    “Anyone who doesnt believe these allegations, just pop in the NFC championship game with Favre. They were diving at his ankles all game. ”

    Then why does ESPN keep showing the same play over and over….ahh revisionist history.

  52. truthhurtstoo says: Apr 25, 2012 9:19 AM

    Aint’s fans are sad for any attempt to support this.
    You should be embarrassed not only for your team but everytime some fan whines that “everybody does it.” Get your bags ready.

  53. bosotomos says: Apr 25, 2012 9:20 AM

    Although some people will be inclined to believe any negative story that comes out about the Saints these days, Smith’s claim doesn’t make a lot of sense. Why didn’t he name the Saints player who told him that? (Answer: He didn’t care and may not even remember.) Why did he wait until now to say anything about it? (Duh, could it have anything to do with current news?) Why didn’t Smith mention it last season, when he was involved in an altercation with Saints safety Roman Harper, who hit him in the end zone after Smith scored a touchdown? (If you’d read about Smith’s reaction to the late hit, he was non-plussed. The hit was exactly what he expected from those dirtbags. No news there.)

    Michael, if you really think this doesn’t make sense, you’re thicker than Drew Brees. C’mon man, does it make any more sense for Smith to make up something like this.

  54. flapjackdaddy says: Apr 25, 2012 9:20 AM

    So, Smith is going to lie about this because he got in a fight with a teammate five years ago? Okay MDS. Okay.

  55. saints4evah says: Apr 25, 2012 9:23 AM

    Sure thing Steveie boy…you remained quiet because you are just so passive. Sheesh. What a stupid little withh hunt and what stupid comments from the sheep.

  56. youboettcha says: Apr 25, 2012 9:23 AM

    The Dave Dameshek Football Program is awesome!

  57. yahmule says: Apr 25, 2012 9:26 AM

    If anybody knows about premeditated violent assaults, it’s Steve Smith.

  58. cooklynn17 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:28 AM

    Targeting players, isn’t that what the defense is supposed to do? Especially if you have the ball………Man up whimps.

    For real, I have never seen a bunch of tough guys turn so soft. Just like these former players joining the concussion lawsuit. Tim Couch, really! It’s a pure money grab, totally embarrassing.

  59. ppc50 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:29 AM

    I believe him, no reason to lie, and, as questioned in the article “why didn’t he name the player?” – he didn’t want to rat out another player, against NFL code. Look at the Sapp/Shockey situation. I think the Saints’ player was scared of Smith, so he said they get fined if they don’t cheap shot, instead of paid to do it.

  60. 2dollarpbrs says: Apr 25, 2012 9:33 AM

    Steve Smith also believes aliens are out to get him

    Can you punch an alien in the face?

  61. eezyxyz says: Apr 25, 2012 9:33 AM

    To be fair to Smith, one of the dirtiest hits I’ve ever seen was Scott Fuijita when he was playing for the Saints with a low hit to Smith’s knees when Smith ran a shallow cross over the middle (can’t recall if it pre-dated Gregg Williams’ time in New Orleans or not). Smith wasn’t even targeted for a pass on the play, and luckily did not suffer serious injury (just limped off for one play). But, as unnecessary, out-of-the-blue cheap shots go, that one by Fujita stands out in my mind as one of the worst, most premeditated I can remember.

  62. elifan4life says: Apr 25, 2012 9:35 AM

    I’m Steve Smith and I approve this message…..

  63. blackcatsluck says: Apr 25, 2012 9:45 AM

    HMMM diving at ankles is legal but definatley unecessary if a player is going out of bounds. That could explain to the Saints fans how they were able to get by with fewer than expected personal fouls while trying to injure folks. Fines for not doing it? Williams had to fund his program somehow and admitted to fines.

  64. tres79 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:46 AM

    This guy is complaining about dirty play?!! If someone tries to hurt Smith, its because he’s a major jerk, not for any bounty.

  65. mullman7675 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:50 AM

    Smith is one of the smaller receivers in the league- yeah, so he has a little nasty in him. He has been hanging with and beating bigger guys for his whole career- it’s a means to an end. It’s effing football people, it’s supposed to be violent and physical. So, that being said, some who play the game may be prone to extreme bouts of agression. It is in their nature, if you don’t like it I recommend following bowling or womens tennis- those sports seem fairly tame.

  66. delhommed says: Apr 25, 2012 10:00 AM

    Smith owns his mistakes. He has no reason to lie.

  67. flapjackdaddy says: Apr 25, 2012 10:03 AM

    Does Smith have a fake smile, too, Mr. Nawrocki?

  68. cwmorga says: Apr 25, 2012 10:09 AM

    So now Saints players were supposedly getting fined by the team for not hitting low? Whatever Steve….

    @truthfactory says: Apr 25, 2012 7:22 AM

    Anyone who doesnt believe these allegations, just pop in the NFC championship game with Favre. They were diving at his ankles all game.
    ———————-
    yeah and you’re a liar. Go to youtube and search for “Favre bounty bowl”. There’s a vid with every hit on Favre in the NFCCG. Please post the time of the low hit on Favre aside from the high low (there’s a good view of that hit which clearly shows the right tackle tried to push McCray past Favre which resulted in the low hit).

    I’ll hang up and listen….

  69. hoober27 says: Apr 25, 2012 10:10 AM

    Not sure what Smith would have to gain by making this up. When he gives interviews he comes off as incredibly candid and thoughtful providing interesting points about what it’s actually like to step onto a football field. Do I honestly believe that Smith’s exact words were “Hey man, but that out”… not a chance; nor do I believe the exact phrasing of what the player said back to him. In the heat of the game, who knows what that player actually said/meant, but either way Gregg Williams was up to some pretty shady stuff and, unfortunately for him, has left it very difficult for us not to believe stories like this.

  70. skolvikesskol says: Apr 25, 2012 10:11 AM

    MDS u r a delta bravo… Why r u asking why? Did u take $ from the saints? R u promised a job? Make a deal with the devil? If u had any pull in ur profession u would actually have answers to ur questions.,, u suck dude!

  71. dunin40 says: Apr 25, 2012 10:26 AM

    For all you knee jerk, crybaby Steve Smith fans, where exactly in the article does the author accuse Smith of lying. Suggesting something be taken with a grain of salt does not suggest that something is a lie.

    Grow up people, and quit assuming crap just so you have something to whine about. You sound like a bunch of 5 year old girls

  72. realpantherfan says: Apr 25, 2012 10:39 AM

    one of the things that you can is that steve has always kept it 100, he has always owned up to what he’s done and have always stood behind his words.

    And from anything i’ve read. he has always spoken the truth.

  73. paulsmith107 says: Apr 25, 2012 11:02 AM

    Ha ha ha dunin40 I was thinking the same thing. 1 just because he was never asked about it before means zero. Me as a player if I were hit late and was told after that basically we will get fined if we don’t cheap shot you to hurt you would def bring that up and with his mouth it surprises me he didn’t. 2 I seriously doubt that another player told smith hey man we have to do this or we get fined lol that is laughable. 3 Steve smith has a lot to gain by this now reffs will be quick to flag the saints for less that borderline hits which makes life easier for Steve to do his thing and finally the more nonsense piled on maybe gets the saints in more trouble and the more they have picks and coaches they lose te more chance Carolina has of being relevant again

  74. jgedgar70 says: Apr 25, 2012 11:05 AM

    “Smith, who has a habit of sucker punching teammates”

    So 2 incidents in an 11-year career constitutes a habit?????????????

    That is the most reprehensible, vile, disgusting display of “journalism” possible. Michael David Smith should be fired. Immediately.

  75. pmars64 says: Apr 25, 2012 11:06 AM

    Yeah, this from a guy whose own teammates went to the coaches and told them that if the coaches don’t get this guy under control, they would in their own way.

    Smith and the Saints have been at each other for years. Just watch any Panthers/Saints game. Maybe he’s being truthful and maybe he’s just adding some salt.

  76. doublebro says: Apr 25, 2012 11:09 AM

    they targeted him because he’s a punk…they didn’t need to put a bounty on him

    What does he have to gain?
    Actually he has a lot to gain.

    Benefits:
    Another unsubstantiated (but heavily reported) allegation against the Saints designed to weaken the organization. Causing the current Saints front office to spend time addressing this BS which draws away from the critical planning necessary to figure out how to prepare the team for the next season.

    Bringing this BS into the current Sports Press Frenzy environment could influence Goodell to institute harsher punishments against Saints players; removing more experienced players that he runs routs against.

    I remember Smith running up to Payton numerous times during games last season and cussing at him. Yeah, Smith has no axe to grind against the Saints. He’s a real class act.

  79. mfclock says: Apr 25, 2012 12:00 PM

    Maybe because Steve Smith isn’t a snitch and he’d rather handle it on the field.

  80. jdoub732 says: Apr 25, 2012 12:59 PM

    He is a female in a man body its alot of that going on yea you not a snitch if it something you mad up. He just felt like he was a target the way we knock the sh!t out of him

  81. jdoub732 says: Apr 25, 2012 1:08 PM

    what do she has 2 gain? Some of you chics that’s probly never played the game. we are a division rival so of course she would say anything to hurt us. Not gonna work

  82. ilovefoolsball says: Apr 25, 2012 1:55 PM

    I can always count on an ignorant comment from the resident town joke known as jenniferxxx.

    Yeah Steve Smith, choir boy himself, always a good, reliable, trusty source of unbiased, untainted information. What a great guy.

    What does he have to gain? Well piling on a divisional rival is a good reason.
    Also jabbing back at the Saints, who SWEPT the Panthers THE LAST TWO YEARS.

    Do you fools really believe a divisonal rival would tell an opponent that he’d be fined if he didn’t try to purposely injure Smith?
    And that if this was true that there wouldn’t be any Saints players pissed off about this policy?
    You all aren’t that dumb really?

    REALLY?

    wow.

    Do you really think Saints defenders were getting fined for not taking cheapshots? Do you think the players would have put up with that? Maybe one of the guys did tell Steve Smith that. Players are always jawing back and forth trying to get into each others heads. That would have certainly gotten into Smith’s head if he started thinking he’d be cheapshotted every time he got the ball.

    I believe Steve Smith because, according to anonymous sources, several members of the Carolina Panthers learned of the Saints Bounty program. Then They kicked in 10,000 dollars to any Saint player who could put Smith on IR.
