NFL Network Suspends Brian Baldinger For Suggesting Eagles Put Bounty On Ezekiel Elliott

Brian Baldinger has been suspended six months without pay by the NFL Network, after suggesting the Philadelphia Eagles put a bounty on Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

During an appearance on Philadelphia radio station 97.5 The Fanatic last week, Baldinger said the following about the Eagles’ approach to Elliott:

“This is the guy that that we’ve got to hurt. This is the guy that we’ve got to 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.”

He then added, “You want to cut off the head to kill the body, that’s the guy you’ve got to get to.”

Baldinger also accused Elliott of being arrogant for his outfit he wore at the NFL draft before finishing, “This is the guy you’ve got to take out. That’s the guy you’ve got to eliminate.”

Baldinger played 11 seasons in the NFL as an offensive lineman and was a member of both the Cowboys and Eagles.

Obviously after the “Bountygate” scandal there was no way the NFL could let one of its employees even passingly suggest putting a bounty on someone.
