The player punishments in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal are in and they're as surprising as the suspensions handed out to GM Mickey Loomis and coaches Sean Payton and Joe Vitt. Jonathan Vilma is suspended for the entire season and Will Smith is out for four games. Former Saints Anthony Hargrove and Scott Fujita were suspended eight and three games, respectively.
SB Nation's Brad Wells notes in our latest YouTube offering that replacing those suspended Saints players will be difficult, but not impossible. Vilma was already starting to break down last year, and the Saints acquired Curtis Lofton in free agency. Smith, only suspended four games, will be eligible for the final 12 of the season.
