NEW ORLEANS (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is still doing interviews regarding player punishments that likely will be handed down for the Saints’ pay-for-hits bounty system.

Speaking to reporters at an NFL draft event on Wednesday, Goodell says he doesn’t expect to issue a decision this week, but he did say: “We’re in the final stages of working on discipline involving the players. We hope to do that very soon and get that behind us.”

A league investigation found that from 2009-11 New Orleans coaches and players put together a bounty system that paid out improper cash bonuses for hits aimed at knocking opposing players out of games.
The NFL says as many as 27 Saints players participated.
