Found April 25, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

According to a tweet by Adam Schefter, the Saints and any team that has players involved in the New Orleans bounty program, might not know what discipline is to be handed down until after the draft.

Text of the tweet- “An announcement on player discipline in Saints bounty scandal is “unlikely” for today. Again. have to wonder now if next week more likely”

The Browns have two defensive players on the roster that could face discipline. LB Scott Fujita and S Usama Young, both potential starters were part of the defense being investigated.

Could the punishment be severe enough that the Browns would need to adjust part of their draft strategy?
