NEW YORK (WFAN) — Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb says too much has been made of the NFL’s bounty scandal, which dominated the sports pages just a year ago.
“You know, this whole bounty thing I think is being way blown out of proportion,” McNabb told WFAN radio’s Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Tuesday. “I think as a quarterback, everyone wants to knock your head off. So if that’s what a bounty is, then I got that ever since Pop Warner. But I think we’re putting too much into it.”
The league levied harsh penalties after its “Bountygate” investigation into the New Orleans Saints’ cash-for-hits program in 2012.
