Jeremy Shockey, The New Orleans Saints have been heavily penalized by the NFL for offering players money to injure their opponents, and now people want to know who’s responsible for leaking the story. According to NFL Networkanlyst Warren Sapp, Jeremy Shockey is the snitch. But the free-agent tight end said that he would never talk publically about what goes on in the locker room.
Shockey said: “It’s reckless, it’s careless, it’s hurtful to me and the great time I had with the Saints… Sean Payton is a father figure to me. I would never do that to him or to the Saints.”
Shockey also said that he would take a polygraph to prove that he didn’t snitch on his team.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell encourages players to come forward and report league violations. According to Yahoo, Goodell has repeatedly promised to protect the identity of the “whistleblowers.” Fox reports that whistle blowers are also protected by the 1970 Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Los Angeles-based employment lawyer Arthur Whang told FOXSports.com:
“Sapp is technically a league employee… If Shockey is the whistle-blower, he is protected. So, by outing him, Sapp may have opened Shockey up to retaliation, such as someone not signing him.”
