NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — The New Orleans Saints could be in trouble with the NFL.
The league says between 22 and 27 defensive players as well as Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams, maintained a "bounty" program funded primarily by players in violation of NFL rules during the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons.
The investigation by the NFL shows that players would pay one another for allegedly injuring opposing players.
Owner Tom Benson says, "While the findings may be troubling, we look forward to putting this behind us."
