Sean Payton's Agent Reportedly Put Up Bounty Money For Saints Players

Head coach Sean Payton may not have directly participated in the New Orleans Saints' alleged bounty program, but that doesn't mean he wasn't indirectly involved. According to a memo sent to all NFL clubs, Payton's agent was involved in the bounty program on more than one occasion. While the league never implicated Payton himself, it did note that he did nothing to stop the program once he got wind of it.

The report comes from NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora. Down the rabbit hole we go!

So, yeah: One would have to assume this is going to get worse before it gets better for the Saints. When the head coach's agent is implicated directly and the general manager is accused of turning a blind eye, it just doesn't look good.
