NFL Turns Evidence For Saints Bounty

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NFL has turned over some evidence to the four players suspended for the Saints bounty program, but lawyers for the players are seeking more information.

According to news reports, current Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith, Green Bay DE Anthony Hargrove and Cleveland LB Scott Fujita will have their appeals heard Monday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

League spokesman Greg Aiello says Friday, "We have followed the procedures set forth in the CBA on appeals of commissioner discipline."

Those procedures include the parties exchanging "copies of any exhibits upon which they intend to rely no later than three calendar days prior to the hearing."

Vilma has been suspended for the 2012 season, while Smith got four games. Hargrove is suspended for eight games and Fujita for three.
