Kurt Warner was one of the quarterbacks the Saints had a bounty for. Though he says the news was disappointing, it wasn’t suprising.

“It’s definitely disappointing, but I won’t say that I’m completely surprised,” Warner told Burns & Gambo of KTAR in Phoenix. “And, again, not necessarily the Saints, but I’m not surprised that there were teams out there doing those kinds of things behind closed doors.”

“I hate the mindset and thought process that I’m going to go out and injure someone. That being said, it’s not rare for individuals to go out and target certain individuals, whether they have an injury and they’re targeting that injury, or whether they’re significant players and they’re trying to target them for a competitive advantage. It probably happened on teams that I was on.”

“I believe it’s something that’s gone on for a long period of time,” Warner said.

Warner is no fool, and his words corroborate what we’ve heard from other current or former players. Like Brett Favre, he recognizes that he’s a target, but he’s disappointed opposing players were attaching a monetary reward to his body.
