:NFL security determined between 22 and 27 defensive players on the Saints, as well as at least one asst. coach, maintained a bounty program.
Investigation reviewed 18.000 documents totaling more than 50,000 pages. Commissioner Goodell will determine the discipline. NFL determined that former Saints DC Gregg Williams administered the program with knowledge of other defensive coaches. Discipline for the Saints could include fines, suspensions and forfeiture of draft choices.
NFL investigation of Saints began in 2010 when allegations were made that Saints targeted QBs such as Brett Favre and Kurt Warner. "In week of the NFCCG, Jonathan Vilma put $10K on a table & said 'this goes to the guy that knocks out Brett Favre.'" A safe prediction: Saints will be disciplined far worse than the Patriots were for Spygate.
Pretty bad day for Saints fans...earlier in the day Drew Brees rejected a $21 mil/yr contract and wants $25 mil/yr. Obviously hes getting older slowly and if they invest so much money in him they cant have money to spend on other talent needs....they're a huge mess. Gonna lose draft picks because of the Bounty Program and harsh penalties
I dont think they canmake the superbowl next yr which is held at their Dome
