Decision On New Orleans Saints' Appeals Could Come Today

A decision from the NFL on the New Orleans Saints bounty appeals could come as soon as today, according to NFL.com.

Commissioner Roger Goodell met with New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis, head coach Sean Payton, and assistant coach Joe Vitt for several hours last week in the league’s offices in New York. The three were suspended for their part in a bounty system set up by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams which financially rewarded players for injuring opponents.

Gregg Williams, who was banned indefinitely, did not appeal his suspension.

Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 season, Loomis was awarded an eight-game suspension, and Vitt was penalized with a six-game suspension. The three are looking for shortened suspensions, however it is unknown if Goodell will be willing to show any leniency considering the outrage in which this story has caused on a national level.
