The New Orleans Saints aren't going to have a very good summer. The shadow of the latest news on this bounty program will be following the team for a while. An NFL investigation found that members of the Saints were participating in a bounty program that rewarded players for injuring players on the opposing team.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hasn't announced a punishment for the Saints yet but SB Nation's Saints blog, Canal Street Chronicles, is hoping to avoid suspensions or loss of draft picks.
As if the Saints don't have enough crap to deal with, now we find out about this. Not good, folks. Not good. I could care less about fines, but having key defensive players suspended or giving up draft choices would be less than ideal.
ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that it's a "safe prediction" that the Saints will be punished worse than the New England Patriots in Spygate. Back then, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000, the team was fined $250,000 and they were docked a first round pick.
