Saints Bounty Punishment To Be Announced This Week, According To Report

The NFC South's most exciting ongoing escapade could reach a thrilling conclusion this week, the NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports. The New Orleans Saints should learn their punishment for Gregg Williams' three-year bounty system by Friday, says Wyche.

It could come Wednesday, as the NFL's Competition Committee is holding a conference call this afternoon. Or it could come Thursday! That's a day we haven't mentioned yet! There, all bases covered. Baseball term.

The Saints are expected to lose a draft pick or two, while players found to have participated are expected to be suspended. Starting middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma may get the worst of it, as far as players go. Williams, now with the Rams, could very well be kicked out of the league.

Just about anything that's bad for the Saints would be good for the Atlanta Falcons, so we'll stay tuned.
