Saints Defense accused of placing bounties on players (Warner)

So, here is something that just broke, the NFL has determined that between 22 and 27 players and some coaches for the Saints defense placed bounties on players. And the investigation began in 2010 when it was alleged that they were targeting Kurt Warner and Brett Favre in the postseason.

Here are some quotes from Schefter.

NFL security determined between 22 and 27 defensive players on the Saints, as well as at least one asst. coach, maintained a bounty program.

Investigation reviewed 18.000 documents totaling more than 50,000 pages. Commissioner Goodell will determine the discipline.

NFL determined that former Saints DC Gregg Williams administered the program with knowledge of other defensive coaches.

Discipline for the Saints could include fines, suspensions and forfeiture of draft choices.

NFL investigation of Saints began in 2010 when allegations were made that Saints targeted QBs such as Brett Favre and Kurt Warner.

Thoughts? I'm not really surprised by this because of the way Gregg Williams ran his defense and some of the things he said during the 2009 playoffs about "remember me shots".
