If there are any charges brought up, it would be conspiricy to commit battery. Law enforcement doesnt need anyone to press charges in order to prove that the Saints were conspiring to injure people.
Personally, i think it is a stretch.
I would much rather the Saints get punished by Goodell than by law enforcement. They would only get probation anyway, and even more likely, the charges would get dropped due to good attorneys.

I've often wondered why Dusty Rhoades never brought criminal charges against the 4 Horsemen for breaking his arm in the parking lot.
That explains a lot.

Regardless of whether the money came from legal or illegal activities, the money received by players represents income. And if income isn’t disclosed to the IRS, that’s a problem.
Go ahead and scoff. That’s surely what the NBA officials who traded first-class airfare for coach and kept the difference and didn’t pay taxes on it believed. Before they were prosecuted for tax evasion.
The NFL already has the evidence. The IRS needs merely to show up with a warrant for the file.
And if so inclined, the IRS can launch an investigation regarding the other 31 teams. While Saints players and other employees opted initially to lie to the NFL, lying to federal authorities has entails slightly greater consequences.
Go ahead and scoff. That’s surely what Martha Stewart did.
