Cowboys Give Hargrove A Shot After Bounty Ban

IRVING (AP) – Anthony Hargrove is getting another shot with the Dallas Cowboys after sitting out a season for his alleged role in the New Orleans bounty scandal.

The defensive end’s eight-game suspension was later reduced, and even vacated. But the nine-year veteran says he didn’t get any calls after Green Bay released him during training camp last year.

It’s the second time Hargrove has missed an entire season. He was suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy in 2008.

The Saints signed Hargrove in 2009, and he moved on to Seattle before the bounty scandal broke. Hargrove was among four players accused of being involved in a system that paid cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents.
