There are different reasons for a bounty including "to award to an existing answer". In some other case, the person is looking for updated answer.

When saw a bounty in the featured tab, The title shows this question has an open bounty worth

Instead if it shows the reason to put the bounty/ the notice, then it will be easy to decide whether we should open the question or not.

This will be helpful in all SE sites but since SO has large number of questions with bounty (At present, it is 399), it will be very much helpful in SO.

So, it will look like

    Eh, I get you want better information, but a title is supposed to be used to explain "what is this?" Providing the reason for a bounty does not explain to a user what the blue box with a number in it means. The current title accurately explains "this blue box means it has an open bounty worth this much reputation."
