Players Injured By New Orleans Saints Could Take Legal Action

As if the New Orleans Saints bounty program story wasn't already ugly enough, it could potentially get a whole lot uglier. According to CBS Sports NFL reporter Pat Kirwan, players who were injured in games against the Saints from 2009-2011 -- the period of time that the bounty program was alleged to have occurred in -- are considering legal action to recoup damages suffered.

It could be some time before an actual lawsuit is filed against the Saints and/or the NFL, but it's not surprising that players are already considering legal action. If one is injured by someone who intended to injure them while violating rules set by their employers, a civil suit seems reasonable.
