NFL Network Suspends Analyst Six Months Without Pay For Suggesting Eagles To Put A Bounty On Ezekiel Elliott
According to a report from The Sporting News, the NFL Network has suspended analyst and former NFL player Brian Baldinger six month without pay.
Last week, Baldinger suggested that the Eagles put a bounty on and attempt to injure Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot during an interview with Philadelphia’s 97.5 The Fanatic,
And I just want you guys to have the same amount of … I want you guys to be irked like I am. I want you to go to bed tonight thinking about this guy, and how pretty he is, and how good he is, because all these backs are the same. They’re all pretty, and they’re all special, and they do all these commercials until they just get tattooed.”
“Until you just pound them into the turf. Until you just drill ‘em. Until their head hurts. So that bumble bee is flying around in their helmet, so he just didn’t know how hard he just got blasted.”
“This is the guy that we gotta hurt. This is the guy that we gotta 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. Let’s get to [backup] Alfred Morris.”
Yeah this isn’t a good look for Baldinger Considering that the NFL is doing everything in their power to promote player safety.
