The NFL announced the findings that a "bounty program" existed between the Saints and around 27 defensive players during the 2009-2011 seasons. Defensive players would get paid for knocking other players off the field via injury, and Saints general manager Mickey Loomis did not stop the program when directed to do so by owner Tom Benson.
Adam Schefter reports this is likely to cost the Saints multiple draft picks, more than SpyGate cost the Patriots.
