You can keep the snitch.
Be happy to. After all, he's actually allowed to take part in this coming season.
If you use the term snitch or rat you're already showing yourself to be a person not to be taken seriously.
Gotta agree. Pretty silly.
I'd like to tell ya it gets better.
I stink at lying

Free-agent tight end Jeremy Shockey fired back at NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, claiming there is no way he would ever have been the source of information that led to the bounty investigation by the NFL and severe penalties against the New Orleans Saints.
“It’s reckless, it’s careless, it’s hurtful to me and the great time I had with the Saints,” said Shockey, who was accused by Sapp of being the “snitch” in this story. “Sean Payton is a father figure to me. I would never do that to him or to the Saints.”
Shockey then twice offered to take a polygraph test to prove his innocence.
The accusation by Sapp threatens to undercut the NFL’s policy of protecting sources. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has repeatedly said the league would protect “whistleblowers” who reported violations of league policy.

If you know that something like the above is going on having witnessed it for whatever reason (employee, friend, family, or whatever) then you have an obligation to society to expose it and that obligation goes beyond any other connections that you have with the offender.
It should be done early to prevent more wrongs from taking place, but ultimately it doesn't matter when or why a whistle blower does his duty as long as they do it.
Unfortunately, honesty, integrity, and a being able to follow a sound moral and ethical compass are not valued by large segments of society as much as a supposed connection to a certain group. This is nothing new (been around for centuries) but it comes from a culture that is driven by people who have stuff to hide. The ones at the top of dishonorable organizations try to make it a bad thing to do the right thing so they make a persons internal compass point towards loyalty at any cost to the group over doing what is right.
It sucks that this mentality is taken on by so many in organizations of all kind, esp. those that are supposed to be the most ethical (talking roman catholic hiding sex abuse among others). It permeates society to a sickening level...look no further than negative comments about being a snitch (snitches get stiches) and being a rat in this thread.
Those who do bad things have succeeded in making what should be honorable and noble into dishonorable and ignoble.
Warren Sapp is part of the problem. He may not be doing the bad things himself, but he's making it ok for bad things to continue by making it uncomfortable for those who want to truly do the right thing afraid of coming forward. that, imo, makes him just as guilty as the offender.
Did Shockey blow the whistle? Maybe. Maybe not. For his sake if he did I hope it never comes out. Whoever did blow that whistle, though, did the right thing regardless of their connection to the saints and the league is better for it. It's a shame that some people within the NFL, esp. players, view the whistle blowing as a bad thing because they chose the integrity of the sport and safety of all it's participants. It also helps in perserving their career and keep it safe from unecessary risk.
