"It's pretty much standard operating procedure," Pryce told The New York Times. "It made our special teams better. I know dudes who doubled their salary from it. Trust me, it happens in some form in any locker room. It's like a democracy, the inmates governing themselves."
Pryce told the Times that he doesn't remembered any instance in which a player received money for injuring a player.
"That stuff is all said in jest, in a tongue-in-cheek way. It's like betting on the sun not coming up," said Pryce, who's now retired after 14 seasons in the NFL. "It's not like the Saints are playing against Holy Trinity College. They're playing against other NFL players. I don't think teams really mean it that way. Now, a big hit is different. Getting rewarded for a big hit, they do that in college. You get a sticker on your helmet."
"You can't just read the words, you have to know the intent," Scott told the Times. "Knocking someone out doesn't mean you're doing something dirty. It's no different than when the Detroit Pistons played Michael Jordan and every time he went to the hole, they were physical with him. No one was literally trying to hurt him.
"To a certain extent, the league could investigate every team and find the same exact stuff."
