NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league is meeting with players' union officials about punishments in the New Orleans Saints bounty case. Goodell says that after Monday's meeting he hopes ''we'll have some information and hopefully a recommendation from the NFLPA.'' The union has asked the NFL to provide it with all the information from the league's investigation that revealed 22 to 27 defensive players were part of the Saints' pay-for-pain bounty pool, which awarded thousands of dollars of cash bonuses from 2009-11 for vicious hits that knocked targeted opponents out of games. Goodell also said the meeting for Saints coach Sean Payton's appeal of his one-year suspension will take place this week, but was unsure when.
