New Orleans decision is in

5

The NFL has suspended New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton for a full year following an investigation into a bounty program the league said the Saints employed from 2009 to 2011, according to internet reports. Payton's suspension is supposed to begin on April 1. New Orleans general manager Mickey Loomis was also hit with an 8-game suspension and fined $500,000. Former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, now with the Rams, has been suspended indefinitely. Assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt was hit with a 6-game suspension without pay as well. The team loses the second round pick in this year's draft as well as a second-round pick in next year's draft and will be fined $500,000.
