    NFL: Saints violated bounty rule

    Team instituted bounty program

    NEW YORK - New Orleans Saints players and at least one assistant coach maintained a bounty pool of up to $50,000 the last three seasons to reward game-ending injuries inflicted on opposing players, including Brett Favre and Kurt Warner, the NFL said yesterday.

    The NFL said the pool amounts reached their height in 2009, the year the Saints won the Super Bowl.
