NFLPA Seeks More Information From NFL In Saints Bounty Probe

The NFL's investigation into the New Orleans Saints bounty program has resulted in suspensions for Sean Payton, GM Mickey Loomis, assistant coach Joe Vitt and other disciplinary measures to the Saints organization, including a fine and loss of draft picks.

Yet to be disciplined in the case is any of the players involved. It's believed that there will be some sort of discipline but the NFLPA, which represents the players, released a statement on the Gregg Williams audio and indicated that the NFL has yet to provide them with evidence of player misconduct in the case.

The NFLPA was aware of the existence of the Gregg Williams audio prior to its release. We learned of the tape as part of our effort to obtain any and all information related to an alleged pay-to-injure scheme. We had no control of the content and did not make a determination on the method of its release. To date, the NFL has not provided the NFLPA with detailed evidence of the existence of such a program.

Thus, players have not been disciplined. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has indicated he will discuss the case with the NFLPA before levying punishments. The NFLPA has said they want to do their own investigation and, judging by the statement above, they're still seeking information from the league about the bounty program as it relates to the players involvement.
