NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has reinstated New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton following a season-long suspension for his role in the team’s bounty scandal.
“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.”
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has rejected the appeals of coach Sean Payton and other New Orleans Saints officials stemming from the league’s probe into the club’s bounty system.
It’s been a wild ride for the New Orleans Saints since the NFL came down hard on them for the alleged “bounty gate” activities.
The NFL says the Saints, head coach Sean Payton, assistant Joe Vitt and GM Mickey Loomis will have their appeals hearing Thursday for punishment connected to the team’s bounty system.
