Anthony Hargrove continued in a long line of Saints and their associates poking holes in the NFL’s bounty evidence.
Hargrove said Tuesday that one of the statements attributed to him wasn’t his voice, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora obtained a copy of Hargove’s statement, which can be read here, where Hargrove says “I have felt like the target of a sophisticated mugging.”
Players and reporters were shown a video presentation Monday, which included what they were told was Hargrove saying “Hey, Bobby, give me the money!” to teammate Bobby McCray after they were told Brett Favre was injured and would have to be replaced.
He’s just the latest in a line of denials, including Mike Ornstein denying he told the NFL that Jonathan Vilma offered $10,000 to anyone who knocked Brett Favre out of the NFC Championship Game, and Joe Vitt’s attorney saying the assistant coach was never accused of putting money into a bounty fund, even though the league released evidence saying he had.
