Brian Baldinger suspended six months for bounty comment

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger has been suspended for six months by the network after his controversial comments regarding Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Baldinger said that the Eagles should put a “little bounty” out on Elliott to injure the rookie running back in the Sunday night matchup between Dallas and Philadelphia.

The comments come a few years after the NFL cracked down on Sean Payton and the Saints for running an alleged bounty program that paid defensive players bounty money for injuring opposing players.
