NFL Network suspends Brian Baldinger for bounty comments



Four years after the NFL cracked down on the Saints for running a bounty program, the league has cracked down on one of its in-house analysts for advocating a bounty program.

Brian Baldinger, the NFL Network analyst who said in a radio interview that the Eagles should put a bounty on Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, has been suspended by NFL Network.

NFL Network told PFT today that Baldinger will be suspended for six months without pay. That’s a longer suspension than media companies typically hand out to commentators who get themselves in hot water, and a strong indication that the league was embarrassed to have one of its own employees advocate for intentionally injuring a player.

Baldinger’s comments were a textbook example of exactly the kind of bounty that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has insisted will never be tolerated in the league.

“This is the guy that that we’ve got to hurt,” Baldinger said of Elliott in a radio interview last week. “This is the guy that we’ve got to take out of the game. There’s got to be 10 guys that want to hurt him every single play. In fact, we may even put a little bounty on Ezekiel Elliott.”

Re: NFL Network suspends Brian Baldinger for bounty comments

lol. Let's crack down on the analysts, but not the other teams. Another glorious statement by the NFL.

From now on, whenever someone asks me how I like my eggs I'll tell them I want them like NFL rules and regulations. That way they'll know I like them scrambled.
