Now that the NFL draft is over, the league will turn its attention to disciplining the New Orleans Saints players involved in the pay-for-performance bounty scandal. It's possible that suspensions could be announced Monday.
"With the discipline that involved the players, we hope to be doing that very soon and get that behind us," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday, before the start of the first round.
"We want to complete the work that we've been starting. We want to make sure that we're thorough and fair. ... Once we're done, we'll issue it. But we're going to probably be distracted here with the draft for the next couple of days, so I don't know how much time I'll be able to spend on it.
"We have others working on it full time, and I'll meet with them over the next several days. If we're done, we'll get it out."
