On #DDFP 64 the insightful Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers shares new information on the Saints’ bounty culture under Gregg Williams. Smith said that Saints players were encouraged to go after him.
“I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand,” Smith said, although he didn’t name the Saints player. “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.”
Smith also breaks down the incoming receiving class of the 2012 NFL Draft and former NFL GM Charley Casserly talks quarterbacks. Have a listen, won’t you?
