NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down discipline against defensive players of the New Orleans Saints who took part in the bounty scandal from 2008-2010. Among the four players getting suspended is current Green Bay Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove. He will sit 8 games, half the 2012 regular season. Hargrove was signed as a free agent by the Packers after playing one season with the Seattle Seahawks. He was a member of the New Orleans Super Bowl championship team and involved in the two playoff games against Arizona and Minnesota where the pay for injury scandal took root. Packers General Manager Ted Thompson, through the team's public relations department, declined to comment on the Hargrove suspension when contacted this afternoon. Thompson drafted a pair of defensive linemen last weekend and also signed former Colt Daniel Muir in the off-season, perhaps anticipating doing without Hargrove for a while. Current Saints players, linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith along with linebacker Scott Fujita, now with Cleveland, were also punished. Vilma will sit out the entire season while Smith was suspended four games and Fujita 3. Representatives for Hargrove, Smith and Fujita say they all plan to appeal. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, now with St. Louis was suspended indefinately for orchestrating the bounty program. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton is already serving his one year suspension, General Manager Mickey Loomis will have to leave the organization for the first 8 games of the season and interim coach Joe Vitt will be suspended the first six games of the year.
