The bounty scandal surrounding the New Orleans Saints is going to get worse before it gets better. With the suspended players in the midst of appeal hearings, the NFL released some new, potentially explosive evidence against the Saints on Monday.
One of the pieces of evidence presented by the NFL is an audio recording of suspended defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove allegedly asking for bounty money. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Tuesday that Hargrove denies the voice on the recording is his.

The end of the road in this bounty case is not even in sight as of yet. It is likely that the legal battles over the suspensions and the supposed evidence against the players and coaches is only going to get uglier and more bitter as time wears on.
