According to Adam Shefter via twitter.

The New Orleans Saints have been under investigation since 2010 when they were suspected to have a target 'bounty' on QBs Brett Favre and Kurt Warner.

Apparently there DC Gregg Williams, amongst other Def Staff have been named, with thousands of pages of documents backing these allegations up. It wasn't just these two QBs, apparently is a list of players... I wonder if they targeted Smith or Gore vs us in the NFCCG

Players would get paid under the table bonuses for hurting key opposing players... is that what we're talking about here?
