Fallout after ex-Saint told 'play dumb' 01:31

A former player for the New Orleans Saints is speaking out, saying coaches told him to hide the team's bounty program.

Ex-defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove submitted a signed statement accusing coaches Joe Vitt and Greg Williams of telling him to "deny the existence of any bounty or bounty program to the NFL." He goes on to claim he was told to 'play dumb' if he were ever questioned. Hargrove says he did as he was instructed, denying knowledge of the program to an NFL security officer back in 2010. Vitt denies the accusations.
Larry Holder, co-host of "The Sports Hangover" on WIST radio and writer for CBSSports.com, explains how the story could cause further fallout for the Saints, and how it will affect lawsuits filed by players against the NFL claiming the organization hid the dangers of concussions from them.
