    Bounty For Turnovers?

    Would a bounty for Turnovers be legal?

    If you fumble, you put $20k in the pot. If you recover a fumble, get an INT, force a fumble, etc, you get a share of the weekly pot.

    If this won't work, how bout we put incentives in contracts to get turnovers and hold on to the ball?

    There has to be a way to incentivize the outcome we want.

    That's good too. Maybe the D players that get the turnovers get to pick the charities. Then there's no bounty and it's completely legal.

    There would have been an $80,000 game in total; some charity in Pittsburgh would have been very happy that weekend!

    Any money that would go to a player would be a circumvention of the salary cap. Illegal, but not on the same level as the player safety issue that the most recent bounty scandal was. As a matter of fact, the cap circumvention of the Saints situation was pretty much swept under the rug.

    I wasn't sure about that, but suspected that might be the case. So let the money go to the charity of the D player's choosing and problem solved.

    Coaches or front office paying players for such things, yeah, that wouldn't be kosher. But if you think about it, players paying other players shouldn't circumvent the salary cap in theory (what goes out of one player's pocket goes into another player's pocket...the team still pays out the same in player salaries either way).

    Too make it more fun and fair to the O, you could fine a D player that gives up a TD and have that money go into a pot for O players that score TDs.
