Question Saints whistleblower identified?

Filmmaker/author Alan Donnes said Tuesday on America's Radio News Network that former Saints defensive quality control coach Mike Cerullo was a whistleblower to the NFL about the Saints' bounty program. Donnes described Cerullo as a disgruntled former employee who couldn't find work after being let go after the 2009 season. Donnes said Cerullo believed Sean Payton and Gregg Williams blocked Cerullo from getting a job in the NFL. Cerullo is currently a football program aide at Connecticut. When contacted by CBSSports.com on March 9 concerning Bountygate, Cerullo said he had no comment.
