The New Orleans Saints bounty-gate is beginning the appeals process, but former New York Giants defensive lineman Jimmy Kennedy won't be testifying. Kennedy told Pro Football Talk that neither he, his lawyer or his agent had been contacted about the possibility.
The story goes that Kennedy informed former Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress that during a game, the Saints had placed a bounty on Brett Favre, who at the time was the Vikings quarterback. Childress then complained to the NFL, thrusting the bounty-gate scandal into the national spotlight.
Kennedy has denied being the whistleblower from the beginning and refuses to admit having any involvement. The fact that he hasn't been asked to testify lends credibility to his claims.
