New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson appeals to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday in what is being descibed as a “productive” meeting between the two.

Neither side is letting on as to what was discussed but the most likely scenario involved the bounty investigation of the Saints organization and the subsequent suspensions that followed.

Speculation has been since news of the meeting being made known was that Benson was likely to appeal to Goodell about possibly reducing the suspension of Saints head coach Sean Payton.

The NFL simply said that Goodell meets with owners on numerous occasions on numerous topics and would neither confirm nor deny that the meeting was taking place.

Another likely conversation that took place was the axe hanging over the club about any future revocations of draft picks in the 2013 NFL Draft as well as the reinstatement of Payton at the conclusion of this season.
