The latest swerve in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal comes from Anthony Hargrove and his recent interview on CBS' The NFL Today.

Hargrove and his agent, Phil Williams, both stated on the program that a settlement had been denied by the payers involved, and Hargrove went on to say that "We never got money to injure anyone."

Twitter was quick to react to the interview and formulate opinions on Hargrove's alleged inclusion in a pay-to-injure program.

Let's look at some of the highlights:


Anthony Hargrove denied strongly any bounty program, pointed out inconsistencies in case, said he would accept no settlement on NFL TODAY

Anthony Hargrove is a strong man. Guilty or not in the bounty saga, he has dealt with a lot in his career, still strong in his conviction.

James Brown did a 5-star job grilling Anthony Hargrove on Bountygate.

@ochocuatro PPL say he's innocent when they have him on audio/video?! Anthony Hargrove's excuse "that wasn't me talking?!" Who else said it?

It is painful to watch Anthony Hargrove on CBS blatantly lie about bounty gate. Terrible. I will forever hate the saints over all 32

Did anyone else sense the awkwardness amongst Anthony Hargrove, JB & Anthony's agent in that interview about bounties? #TheNFLToday

— Renee McDowell (@ReneeMcDowell) December 9, 2012 are a terrible liar....this CBS interview just made believe even more there was a Bounty Program

If Anthony Hargrove is telling the full truth, Roger Goodell should no longer be commissioner. There's zero gray area. None.

The decision in the case now rests in the hands of former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.
