NFL Will Meet This Week To Discuss Saints Punishment

NFL officials will reportedly meet with the New Orleans Saints to determine an appropriate punishment for the alleged bounties that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams put on opposing players. It is currently unclear what kind of punishment the Saints should expect.

It has been reported that the Saints could receive a punishment worse than what the New England Patriots received for their so-called "Spygate." Patriots coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 and the Patriots were fined $250,000 as well as docked a first-round pick in connection to that incident.

The assertion here is that, regardless of the intent of the "pay for performances," the fact that cash payments were exchanged is a violation of the salary cap. When combined with allegations that players were paid to injure their opponents, the investigation could become more serious.

Check out all the details of the investigation here. Visit SB Nation's Saints blog, Canal Street Chronicles.
