Let's check in with Darren Sharper, the former New Orleans Saints safety who has been a bastion of entertainment -- if not truth -- when it comes to the "bounty" scandal.
Now Sharper is offering his opinion on how player discipline should be handled. Perhaps not surprisingly, Sharper believes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should let it slide.
Sharper was a member of the Saints in 2009 and 2010, two seasons in which then-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams ran a pay-for-performance system, according to the league. Jonathan Vilma was the only player named in the investigation, and Sharper believes it's unfair to punish a player without what he sees as hard proof.
"You are kind of tinkering on thin ice there by saying you are going to take a guy away from the game," he said, "and have him lose money when you don't necessarily have material or bullet proof that guys did that."
