After word surfaced that Sean Payton had been suspended for a full year as part of the punishment for the Saints bounty program, Warren Sapp accused Jeremy Shockey of being the “snitch.” Sapp sent out a tweet despite the fact that he had absolutely no evidence for what he was saying, and Shockey was understandably furious over it. Jeremy blasted Warren for the tweet and we told you exactly how we feel about Sapp for doing something that irresponsible. On Thursday, Shockey offered further proof that his relationship with Payton is fine when he tweeted a screen shot of a text conversation between him and his former coach:
The exchange does not exonerate Payton, of course, but it does at least show that there are no hard feelings between the two. If they really wanted to, Payton and Shockey could have planned the exchange — especially since the part that reads, “Hell you were in the offensive mtgs with me!!!” supports Payton’s assertion that he had no idea what the defense was doing. Still, the texts make it pretty obvious that Payton does not believe Sapp.
