The New Orleans Saints are facing discipline from the NFL for their "Bounty Program", according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
In this program, defensive players on the Saints collected a bounty for injuring players on the opposing team under the direction of former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Brett Favre and Kurt Warner were among those players that were targeted - and fines, suspensions, and possibly losing draft picks could be the end result of this scandal for New Orleans.

In one of the most shocking revelations to come to light in recent years, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Saints instituted and carried out a “bounty fund” within their defense, over the course of the 2009, 2010, and 2011 seasons.

Adam Schefter of ESPN noted that the Steelers won't place the franchise tag on restricted free agent receiver Mike Wallace.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers will place their franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson.
Goldson had a great year in 2011 with 67 tackles and 6 interceptions.
Since the 49ers used their tag on Goldson, they’ll have to work hard over the next week and a half to get quarterback Alex Smith and cornerback Carlos Rogers under contract.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers won’t place the franchise tag on wide receiver Mike Wallace. They’ll instead place a first round tender on him, since he’s a restricted free agent. This means that if a team wants to sign Wallace, they can make him an offer and the Steelers would then have a chance at matching that offer. If they can’t match...
k, what do spies do?
From ESPN‘s Adam Schefter today come two revelations about Peyton Hillis, one surprising, one not so much.

Do what now?
The Browns have made the decision...
Adam Schefter at ESPN reported this morning that according to a source, the Steelers are not going to use their franchise tag on restricted free agent Mike Wallace. The Steelers plan to place a first-round tender — and not the franchise tag — on restricted free agent Mike Wallace, a source close to the wide receiver told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Even with Hines Ward...
We reported a few days ago that the Cleveland Browns will not use the franchise tag on running back Peyton Hillis, but will try to re-sign him to a multi-year deal.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has confirmed that Hillis will indeed not be franchised.
Schefter also mentioned that Hillis thought about retiring during this past season and joining the CIA. Right now though, it’s not clear...
Per a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers will tender coveted receiver Mike Wallace in preparation for the upcoming free agency period rather than placing a $9.4 million franchise tag on him.
With yesterday’s news that they intend to release Hines Ward and Ben Roethlisberger’s contract restructuring, the Steelers now find themselves close to $3 million...
Steelers fans everywhere just started chewing their fingernails a little more frantically, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that the Steelers will not be placing the franchise tag on star wide receiver Mike Wallace.

According to Schefter...
