NFL Suspends Sean Payton For Year


The NFL has punished the New Orleans Saints for their bounty program.

And the punishment is harsh.

Head coach Sean Payton has been suspended for one-year, effective April 1. The Saints have also been stripped of two second-round draft picks. They have also fined the team $500K. GM Mickey Loomis will also be suspended for eight games.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, now with the Rams, is suspended indefinitely.

Yikes. The NFL doesn’t play around.
