Tagliabue expected to present bounty ruling

  • Updated: December 11, 2012 - 9:53 AM

Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will rule Tuesday afternoon on the latest round of player appeals in the NFL's bounty probe, and any potential punishment will be delayed by a week, a person familiar with the decision said.

The delay is designed to give a federal judge the opportunity to rule on pending motions to throw out the suspensions and remove Tagliabue as the appointed arbitrator for the player appeals to the league, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Monday.

If the sanctioned players find Tagliabue's decision palatable, the bounty saga could come to an end more than nine months after the NFL's probe of New Orleans' cash-for-hits program was made public. If not, it will be up to U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan to disqualify Tagliabue or let his ruling stand.
