New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson and coach Sean Payton have met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who will decide the team's punishment for its bounty program from 2009-11. The Saints said Benson and Payton requested Monday's meeting with Goodell. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams - who is now with the St. Louis Rams - met last week with NFL investigators looking into the bounty system he ran in New Orleans. Thousands of dollars in payoffs went to players for hits that knocked targeted opponents out of games. The NFL said the amounts reached their height in 2009, the season the Saints won the Super Bowl. Punishments could include suspensions, fines and loss of draft picks.
