“This is the guy that that we’ve got to hurt," Baldinger said last week on 97.5 The Fanatic, via PFT. "This is the guy that we’ve got to take out of the game. There’s got to be 10 guys that want to hurt him every single play. In fact, we may even put a little bounty on Ezekiel Elliott.

“This is the guy you’ve got to take out. That’s the guy you’ve got to eliminate.” 

Baldinger, a regular contributor on CSN, began his career as an offensive lineman in 1982 with the Cowboys and finished it in 1993 with the Eagles.
