NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will reportedly determine the team's discipline for the program, however Schefter reports that such a violation could result in fines, suspensions, and forfeiture of draft choices. 2012 saw a league-wide crackdown on illegal hits, as a new focus has been placed on the dangers of concussions. Williams left the Saints this offseason to accept the defensive coordinator position with the St. Louis Rams.
