    DOCUMENT: ANTHONY HARGROVE WAS TOLD TO LIE BY GREGG WILLIAMS, JOE VITT ABOUT BOUNTY PROGRAM

    <font size="4"><font size="3">DOCUMENT: ANTHONY HARGROVE WAS TOLD TO LIE BY GREGG WILLIAMS, JOE VITT ABOUT BOUNTY PROGRAM

    "</font></font>Former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove submitted a signed
    declaration to the NFL in April detailing how he was instructed to lie to the
    NFL by current and former Saints assistant coaches Joe Vitt and Gregg Williams
    in 2010 about the team's bounty program.


    &gt; The declaration, obtained by Yahoo! Sports on Monday, was provided to
    the NFL by Hargrove through the NFL Players Association. A source said last week
    that the NFLPA submitted the declaration in hopes of proving that Hargrove and
    other Saints players were merely following orders by coaches appealed their suspensions on Monday. </p>


    "I don't know what the union was thinking when it provided the declaration,"
    a source said. The source said the declaration only served as proof of
    Hargrove's involvement and backed up the contention by the league that other
    players were involved. </p>


    Messages to the NFL and NFLPA were not immediately returned. </p>


    In the declaration, which was signed by Hargrove on April 13, Hargrove said
    that on approximately Feb. 24, 2010, he was called into a meeting with Williams.
    Hargrove said Williams initially talked about football, saying that Hargrove
    would get a chance tostart at defensive end in the following season. </p>


    The conversation then turned to the bounty program after Vitt joined in.
    Williams said the NFL was going to come to theSaints facility to ask about the bounty program. Williams also said "some people
    thought that [Hargrove] had told Vikings player Jimmy Kennedy about the
    existence of a 'bounty' on Brett Favre because" Hargrove was friends with
    Kennedy. </p>


    Hargrove said Williams then said he was going to deny the existence of any
    bounty system, and that both Williams and Vitt instructed Hargrove to do the
    same. Williams also said: "Those [expletives at the NFL] have been trying to get
    me for years" and if all the Saints "stay on the same page, this will blow
    over." </p>


    Hargrove said he met with an NFL security officer in March 2010 and did as
    instructed by Williams and Vitt, denying any knowledge of a bounty program. </p>

    Hargrove said he never had any further discussion about the incident until
    March 2012, when NFLPA attorneys said the NFL would likely want to talk to
    Hargrove again." </p>
