UNITED STATES (NBC33) — Saints Assistant Head Coach Joe Vitt made a phone call to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell today, adamantly deny putting up bounty money during the 2009 season.
The NFL released several pieces of evidence to reporters on Monday. One piece of evidence alleged Vitt put up $5,000 to knock Brett Favre out the NFC Championship Game in 2010.
Today though, Vitt released a statement after his conversation with Goodell:
“The NFL has publicly sought to clarify that the document that has been mischaracterized was not intended to implicate me - formally or informally.”
