VIDEO: Saints Bounty Program Could Result In Unprecedented Punishments

An NFL investigation revealed on Friday uncovered a significant bounty program put into place in New Orleans by former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. The discovery of a somewhat formal pay-for-performance system, in which players were rewarded for injuring opponents, shook the NFL, and the implications and fallout could be widespread as the league begins to hand out punishments.

As we all wait to see what's next, SB Nation's Dan Rubenstein and Brad Wells discussed the potential punishment, the comparisons to Spygate and what may happen to Williams going forward. The video can be found below, as well as on our new Youtube channel, which you can subscribe to here.

While this does compare to Spygate in a way, especially when considering the team's involvement in activities deemed illegal by the NFL, the fallout from the bounty investigation is likely to far exceed that of the Patriots' investigation, as Wells notes. Additionally, we don't yet know the full results of the investigation, if things spread beyond New Orleans, or if there's more than meets the eye.

All of these questions should become clear in the next few days and weeks, but for now it doesn't look good for any of the parties involved.

Check out all the details of the investigation here. Check out Canal Street Chronicles for more on the Saints.
