Saints Punishment For Bounty Scandal Could Be Coming This Week

The NFL is expected to hand down punishment sometime this week to those involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. The league reportedly wanted to make a decision before their owner meetings next week and according to NFL Network the league could announce punishment sometime before Friday.

Owners and other league executives will be getting together in Florida on Monday for the start of the annual spring owners meetings.

It's possible the punishments to everyone involved are staggered. For example, we could hear of a fine for the Saints organization as a whole this week and perhaps even suspensions for the coaches involved, including Saints head coach Sean Payton and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams (who is now with the Rams). But the NFLPA wants to conduct its own investigation so some of the players involved, like Jonathan Vilma, may not receive their punishments right away.

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