Drew Brees, Scott Fujita Meet With NFL Over Saints Bounty Probe

Drew Brees and former New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita are meeting with the NFL on Monday to discuss the team's bounty program under Gregg Williams, an anonymous source told the Associated Press. The two are joined by DeMaurice Smith, head of the NFL Players' Association.

How much more information will be revealed remains to be seen, as the meetings were not supposed to be made known to the public. Commissioner Roger Goodell will reportedly hand out punishments soon to individual players who took part in the program. According to reports, middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma is already bracing for a two to eight game suspension.

Brees and Fujita are both members of the NFLPA's executive committee, as well as key leaders of the team when the bounty pool grew as large as $50,000 during the Saints' 2009 run to a Super Bowl victory.
