Jeremy Shockey the snitch in NFL bounty-gate

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came down hard on the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. Earlier this month, it was revealed the Saints defense paid bonuses to players for deliberately knocking opposing players, violating league rules, salary cap and endangering others well being. Master mind and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely and head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 season.

NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp is accusing Jeremy Shockey of being the snitch, claiming the motive being that Shockey was released by the team before the 2011 season. Sapp revealed on Twitter he knew who the league’s source was, when a follow suggested Shockey @QBKILLA replied “BINGO!”

Shockey adimitly¬†denies being the deep throat, even telling Sapp “you know where to find me.”

UPDATE 3/22: Shockey tweeted a picture screen of a text message conversation with Payton clearing his name. “Shock your (sic) my guy and always will be!!! I know you had nothing to do with that stuff sap said!! Hell you were in the offensive meetings with me!!!”
