Bill Romanowski comments on Carter’s bounty talk, taking money for plays
Former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski joined the show to talk about Cris Carter’s claims he offered money to teammates to target Romanowski.
Romanowski said that Carter absolutely made this up. “If there would have been anything that would happen, it may have been during the game,” Romanowski said.
“If he put a bounty on me, it wasn’t very good because it didn’t work,” Romanowski said.
Romo thinks this is about publicity for Carter. “I just think this is his way of trying to make himself relevant for what is going on now,” Romanowski said.
Dan asked if he ever took extra money for doing something on the football field. “$500 to sack a quarterback by Ronnie Lott,” Romanowski said.
But Romo said that bounties aren’t significant financially as some people are making them out to be. “When you’re getting paid millions to play football, what was $1,000?” Romo said.
Romanowski said he doesn’t think there’s proof the Saints went after quarterbacks any different than other teams around the leagu
Dan asked his opinion on the one-year suspension for Jonathan Vilma. “I think it absolutely wrong and unjust,” Romanowski said.
Romo said he’s not part of the concussion lawsuit, but he admitted he’s concerned about the long-term effects of playing. He said that all the hits add up.
“There was not a game I played in where I didn’t see stars numerous time,” Romanowski said.
