Per Adam Schefter:

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.

See how they wait for Greg Williams to leave before doing anything? Seems like they didn't want to rock the boat while they were still successful.

moar...

AdamSchefter NFL determined that former Saints DC Gregg Williams administered the program with knowledge of other defensive coaches.

AdamSchefter Discipline for the Saints could include fines, suspensions and forfeiture of draft choices.

AdamSchefter NFL investigation of Saints began in 2010 when allegations were made that Saints targeted QBs such as Brett Favre and Kurt Warner.

Say bye bye to some draft picks Saints (2013 picks that is, because you spent most of this years on an injury proned RB).

Rewards given to players for causing injury (or taking out) an opposing teams player.

Higher rewards on more prominent players.

I'd imagine the bounty on Smitty has been pretty high for a while (i.e. Roman Harper's late hit)

  • ""The bounty program was administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams with the knowledge of other defensive coaches. Funds were contributed on occasion by Williams." The NFL said its "investigation "showed that the total amount of funds in the pool may have reached $50,000 or more at its height during the 2009 playoffs. "
