New England Patriots Star

Flattered By NFL Bounties

3/6/2012 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With everyone freaking out about the NFL bounty scandal ... one of the men who was likely targeted doesn't seem to be worried one bit.

TMZ spoke with New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez -- who along with Rob Gronkowski DESTROYED defenses during the 2011 season.

Hernandez was leaving Saddle Ranch on Sunset Blvd. last night when we asked if he would be pissed if he learned the New Orleans Saints had a bounty to knock him out of a game.

Aaron actually seemed flattered by the idea ... and smiled at the thought that a bounty on him might be worth more than one on a Pro Bowl QB.

In case you haven't heard, the NFL is coming down on the Saints for allegedly organizing a bounty program ... in which defensive players would get a cash reward for KO-ing certain NFL stars.

His remarks may come back to bite him in his wallet This is an issue that will result in big fines and missed games. And It should. Trying to mame an opponent and maybe even end their career is wrong.

i like hernandez as a player, but i get sick of seeing him do his immature "make it rain" dance after every touchdown. only 17 year old hood rats do the make it rain dance. hernandez, you're a professional......act like it.

Football players are paid big money to take big hits! All teams do it.. Saints just got caught. If football wasn't a violent sport, they wouldn't have to wear pads. Even a hit that was non-intentional could end a career. Don't like the hits, get out of football!
