Panthers' Smith says Saints player admitted trying to hurt him

In another episode of "The Bounty", Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith said that a Saints player admitted to targeting him. With everything that has came out recently it hardly registers as shocking.

Smith was on NFL.com's "Dave Dameshek Football Program," and told him he's "always known" that Gregg Williams' defenses try to hurt you. he then rehashed an altercation with a Saints player who shall remain nameless about a cheap shot he tried to give Smith.

"I actually had an altercation with a guy who told me firsthand," Smith said Tuesday on NFL.com's "Dave Dameshek Football Program," although he didn't name the Saints player. "I was going out of bounds, and the guy went for my ankle. I said, 'Hey, man, cut that out.' He's like, 'Well, we get fined if we don't go after your legs when you go out of bounds.' ... And actually this past year, this last game when we played them, I had a little conversation with Gregg Williams. ... He took responsibility, he was saying it wasn't right, but that's who he was."

If you remember back in week 5 the Saints-Panthers game got a little chippy and there was some pushing and shoving from both sides.

Right now any story about the Saints hardly surprises me.
