An announcement by the NFL about discipline for the New Orleans Saints for their bounty program is expected shortly, according to the NFL Network.

We don’t know the exact nature of the discipline yet, but the league has said previously it could include suspensions of players, coaches and front-office officials, fines and the loss of draft picks.

As soon as the official announcement is made, I’ll be back to analyze what it means for the Saints.


http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth


PAYTON, WILLIAMS, LOOMIS SUSPENDED

Saints head coach Sean Payton will be suspended without pay for one season; GM Mickey Loomis suspended for first eight games; former DC Gregg Williams suspended indefinitely

All below from Jason LaCanfora on twitter:

Saints fined $500K and Sean payton suspended w/o pay for the 2012 season. Mickey Loomis suspended w/o pay for 8 games...


Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely. Commish will review Williams situation at end of 2012 season and consider reinstatement


Payton's suspension begins April 1, saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt suspended w/o pay for 6 games


So, indeed, the punishments were every bit as severe as most thought were possible. And player discipline still to come


Saints will also have to forfeit 2nd round picks in 2012 and 2013 on top of $500K fine


So Saints don't pick til the 3rd round in April, and will be picking without Sean Payton around, as his suspension starts April 1


The league does not stipulate when GM Mickey Loomis begins suspension but it notes 8 reg season games. With the Brees contract looming...


It appears as if Loomis could still operate the club til Week 1. Again, no date is listed for his start

@JasonLaCanfora
Expecting a decision on bounty discipline for Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Gregg Williams and Saints team sanctions to come down shortly


@JasonLaCanfora
Discipline for the individual players involved likely to come at a later but could be addressed broadly today


maybe not, that's how i interpreted it, but here's LaCanfora saying possibly otherwise on individual player punishments

not much to brace for based on what is already listed despite a 1st pick. Either way, I'm loving it and hope their 1st picks natched away. Heck give em' Clausen!
