ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Saints are in danger of NFL discipline after maintaining a "bounty program" to take opposing offensive players out of games under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
Per Schefter, the NFL's investigation began in 2010, when Williams' defense began targeting Brett Favre and Kurt Warner. Between 22 and 27 Saints defenders were allegedly involved, as well as at least one defensive assistant. The league has reportedly reviewed 18,000 documents totaling more than 50,000 pages. New Orleans' discipline may lead to fines, suspensions, and draft-pick forfeiture. Williams is now defensive coordinator for the Rams.

I don't really remember hearing anything about this before but this is kinda crazy.

Wonder if williams faces discipline too.  Wouldn't hurt my feelings to see N.O. Get hit hard.

This looks like it could get real ugly...   After 7 years of Katrina sympathy it appears there could be some bad karma coming the Saints way.

per rotoworld again

The Saints' 2010-2011 "bounty" program under ex-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is being characterized by the NFL as a "pay for performance" plan that awarded defenders $1,500 for "knockouts" and $1,000" for offensive players the opposing team was forced to cart off the field.
The Saints would often target a particular player, which reminds of Williams' comments to inflict "remember-me shots" on Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in 2010. Players "regularly" put money into a cash pool and received payments when they successfully injured opponents. New Orleans is already without a 2012 first-round pick, so the NFL could begin taking away additional draft choices this year and a first-rounder in 2013. Expect discipline to be harsh. It will be discussed further at the league's meetings in March.


looks like the saints are marching out. why would brees even want to come back to the team if they can't draft anyone?

i'm all for playing physical and big hits, but that's just plain dirty and cheap! I hate to see any player injured, because I know how hard they probably worked to get to that point.

I hope the Saints get blitzkrieged by the NFL.

Wow. What kind of sick mentality do you have to have to want to purposely injure another player.
