PLAYERS: Eric Berry
TEAMS: Kansas City Chiefs

Amidst the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry admitted last month that he wondered whether or not the block that knocked him out for the season was bounty related.

Sometimes I sit n wonder if they had a bounty out on me…oh well…who cares. Either way u can’t hold me down.

At the time Berry said it was ”pretty much a joke.” , but after being continually asked about the situation, he conceded that he still wonders about the play that knocked him out for most of the 2011 season, per the Associated Press.

“They got the tape out there, you can make your own opinion,” Berry said. “I mean, my opinion is my opinion. People are going to take it how they want to take it anyway.

“To me, that’s in the past,” he said. “It is what it is.”
