The New Orleans Saints are bracing for the worst as they prepare to deal with the punishment that will be handed down by the league for their involvement in a “bounty system” under the direction of former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Under this “bounty system” player were paid for big hits — knockout blows — and even cart off hits. Well, allegedly, but the NFL claims to have damaging proof this occurred under Williams tenure from 2009 through the 2011 season.

The penalties are expected to be extreme  — suspensions, fines, and forfeiture of draft picks — are  just the tip of the iceberg as the players involved from the Saints could also face legal action from opposing NFL players.

Gregg Williams was summoned to New York yesterday to meet with the NFL security group to discuss the “bounty system”, not only from his time with the Saints, but through his years with the Titans, Bills, and Redskins.

Williams suspension could be as many as eight games into the upcoming 2012 NFL season.

But it’ll be a few more weeks before the Saints, or Gregg Williams, know what their fate is as the NFL is expected to reveal punishment sometime before league meetings occour in or around March 25th.

    I don’t want to see Drew Brees depart but the game must go on. Drew Brees could have ended all of this before the season ended but he didn’t want to talk about the contract deal. If the General Manager want to talk money highest paid player in the NFL and you don’t want to talk. That agent you have Drew you need to separate yourself from whoever you are listening to they got you all balled up. You can’t look at know one else you missed up you dont need and agent to count your money. That old saying, said you move you lose so Drew Brees we love you but we can’t hold you its on you easer you in are you out.
