Jimmy Kennedy insists he isn't the whistleblower who sent the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal into motion.
The NFL says otherwise, but Kennedy has taken to Twitter to deny the allegations.
In a memorandum issued by the league to all teams Tuesday, the NFL identified Kennedy, a Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman from 2008-10, as the person who originally told former Vikings coach Brad Childress that the Saints had a 10,000 bounty on quarterback Brett Favre in the NFC championship game after the 2009 season.
The NFL went on to say that Kennedy identified former Saints defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove as his source. This isn't the first time Kennedy and Hargrove have been linked together.
Try to follow along because now it gets a bit confusing.
In May, Hargrove issued to the NFL a declaration of his side of the bounty story. In it, Hargrove said he was called into a meeting with former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and assistant coach Joe Vitt.
