Seahawks Were Saints Bounty Targets [VIDEO]
Documents released by the NFL in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal show that several Seahawks were targeted in their January 2011 playoff game.
League officials displayed a computer files obtained from the Saints, dating from before a January 2011 playoff game against the Seahawks and showing three photos of Seattle players with “Now it’s time to do our job. Collect bounty $$$!.
The photos are of ex-Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and Seahawks receiver Mike Williams and running back Marshawn Lynch. The host Seahawks won the game 41-36.
Evidence included handwritten notes, documents from the Saints’ computer system and witness testimony.
Saints coach Sean Payton and several Saints players have been disciplined by the NFL.
This video of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch shows that any efforts to take him out of that playoff game by the Saints were not effective.
