The Bounty Hunters

New, comments

The NFL is investigating whether the Packers placed bounties on any opposing players. GM Ted Thompson was pretty quick to pounce and take responsibility for any bounties that might have been placed. The Packers are the youngest team in the NFL and maybe if there were more veterans who might have known better on the team something like this might have not happened. Tom Pelissero believes this might not be a big deal but the NFL took a pretty dim view of New England videotaping the Jets sidelines and took away a 1st round pick from them, so right now I would guess that a penalty might be slapped on the team (not necessarily a 1st round pick, but not a slap on the wrist either). I can't remember anything like this happening anytime recently in the NFL, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was a big issue at one time in the NFL. Does anyone specifically remembering something like this before?
