  Cowboys | Sign Anthony Hargrove    Thu May 16, 02:48 PM

The Dallas Cowboys signed DE Anthony Hargrove (Saints) Thursday, May 16. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Hargrove was with the Packers last year (released in August) and had to sit out eight games due to the Saints 'bountygate' scandal. He is position versatile and able to line up inside at DT or outside at DE. Hargrove is no lock to make the roster but would give them solid veteran depth if he makes the team.

  NFL | Anthony Hargrove's voice not in bounty video     Wed Jun 20, 08:25 AM

Green Bay Packers DL Anthony Hargrove said it's not his voice saying, 'Give me the money' in a video used by the NFL as evidence in its investigation of the New Orleans Saints' bounty program. 'It wasn't me. That's right. The NFL got their evidence all wrong,' Hargrove said. 'In their rush to convict me, they made a very serious error.' The league showed reporters a clip from the 2010 NFC Championship Game in which Hargrove purportedly made the 'money' comment about injuring then-Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre. Hargrove insisted it was someone else uttering those words, though he said he didn't know who.

  Packers | May decide to keep Anthony Hargrove    Thu May 3, 01:36 PM

The Green Bay Packers may decide to keep DE Anthony Hargrove even though he has been suspended for the first eight games of the 2012 season.

Footballguys view: Hargrove's suspension was bigger than others involved in the BountyGate scandal because the NFL determined that he obstructed the investigation by the league and was lying to officials. He was a late March addition by the Packers as he signed a one-year $825k contract.

  Saints | Jonathan Vilma banned for the year     Wed May 2, 12:02 PM

The NFL suspended four players for their roles in the New Orleans Saints' bounty system, including LB Jonathan Vilma for the entire 2012 season. In addition to Vilma, DE Will Smith was suspended four games, Green Bay Packers DT Anthony Hargrove was suspended eight games and Cleveland Browns LB Scott Fujita three games.

Footballguys view: The NFL's investigation came to the conclusion that Vilma was a ring leader of the bounty program alongside former Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams. Vilma's suspension will start immediately while the other players suspended will be able to participate in Offseason Training Activities. Free agent addition Curtis Lofton will shift to middle linebacker to replace Vilma.
