NFL Suspends Four Players For Involvement In Saints Bounty Program

The NFL has finally announced the punishment for players involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty program. Previously, we had heard about the punishment for the non-players involved in the scandal, and the NFL came down quite hard on them. That was also the case for the players involved. Here are the suspensions:

Vilma's suspension is the longest because he offered a $10,000 bounty on Kurt Warner and Brett Favre during the 2009 playoffs, according to the NFL. The other players who have been suspended either offered "significant" amounts of money for "cart-offs" and "knockouts" of opponents or actively participated in the program.

To say the least, the NFL is sending another big message to players that bounties and things of that sort will not be tolerated.
