NFL Legend Joe Theismann

There Was a Bounty

On MY Head

NFL Network analyst Joe Theismann says he wasn't shocked by the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal ... telling TMZ he was targeted for punishment way back in his Washington Redskins glory days.

Theismann -- who led the 'Skins to a Super Bowl victory back in 1983 -- was at LAX this weekend when we asked if he thought opponents ever tried to take him out of a game for a shot at an illegal cash bonus.

Joe replied, "Absolutely ... to be honest with ya, if you didn't have a bounty on your head when I played ... it means you weren't worth anything anyway."

Bonus! We also asked Joe which NFL QB is considered the best-looking guy in the league ... and, shocker, it WASN'T Tom Brady!

Duh. The NFL's not-so-best kept secret is that they ALL play dirty. The NO Saints just got caught. I'm not saying it's right, but if they're going after one team they should go after them all.

I wouldn't be surprised if Joe's own teammates put a bounty on him! The rumor was most of the Redskins didn't like him very much
