Just about every player or coach involved in the New Orleans Saints‘ bounty scandal has issues with the NFL’s investigation and resultant punishment of Sean Payton and the Saints franchise. New Denver Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter, who played his first four seasons with the Saints, is among them.

Porter told reporters in a conference call this morning that he was not interviewed as part of the league’s BountyGate investigation, per Andrew Mason of CBS Sports and, and that he has issue with the reports on the scandal at a foundational level.

“The whole label of ‘bounty’ is absurd,” Porter said. “There’s definitely no bounty on any player out there in the game. We’re just playing football.”

Porter’s comments are interesting, but the punishment dealt by the league suggests the “bounty” label is far from absurd. Hopefully the NFL’s lack of communication with Porter means he isn’t being considered for punishment in the form of a suspension. He only has one year as a Denver Bronco, after all.

    Hope he clears this mess.

    Of course he would say that.  The suspensions RG handed out, errr.. hammered out, would suggest Porter is either naive or lying.

    I can change it if you feel it is against the TOS.  I just googled all his articles and saw how many times he was way off on something and wrote in the first words out of my mouth…
