Tagliabue overturns Saints suspensions

Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue has overturned all discipline against the New Orleans Saints players involved in the league's bounty investigation, CBS Sports and The Associated Press reported.

He lifted the suspensions of four current and former Saints players, but did find that their conduct was detrimental to the NFL.

"However, this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints’ organization," Tagliabue said in a statement.

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma initially had been suspended the whole season, while Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove received shorter suspensions.
