...the League today advised Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma that they have a sworn statement confirming that he put a 10,000 dollar bounty on Brett Favre.

And in what should be a shock to pretty much no one, the source of the statement is ex-Saints DC Gregg Williams.

In said statement, Williams also affirms the existence of the bounty program.

Oops :lol:

NFL tells Vilma: Williams confirmed you put a bounty on Favre

The NFL’s most explosive claim against any of the players it suspended in the Saints bounty investigation was that linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered $10,000 to any teammate who could knock Brett Favre out of the 2010 NFC Championship Game. Vilma says that isn’t true, but when he went to the league office today, the NFL told him that former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has confirmed that Vilma did, in fact, put a bounty on Favre.
Vilma was handed a sworn affidavit from former Williams confirming the $10,000 offer, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
In that sworn affidavit, Williams admitted he had a pay-for-performance pool funded by Saints players, admitted he knew the pool violated league rules, and admitted he misled the NFL when he was first questioned about it in 2010. Even in that confession, however, Williams said he never encouraged players to inflict injuries or commit penalties.
The news today echoes what we heard in June, which is that Williams was one of three people who told league investigators that Vilma made the $10,000 offer. However, one of those three people, Mike Ornstein, later denied that he told the league investigators that.
Williams hasn’t said much of anything publicly since he was banished from the NFL in the Saints’ bounty investigation. But in talks with the league, he has apparently pointed the finger at Vilma.

Have to admit....this screams of a move made by somebody who wants to get back in good graces with the people who decide if he can coach again or not.

.....still, I love it.

to be objective, someone saying you did something bad when they have something to gain by saying it, doesn't really prove anything. unfortunately, there isn't a system in place to get a jury-equivalent to review these statements for their truth. oh well. suck it saints. just hope we keep our noses clean.

saints fan:

I'm sure Vilma already has sworn under oath that this did not happen, somebody is lying and I don't think its Vilma.
