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.
