Roger Goodell is standing by the NFL's investigation into the Saints' bounty system, informing the four players who received suspensions as a result of the alleged pay-for-play setup that their discipline has been upheld.
That means a season-long suspension without pay for Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Also suspended without pay are Packers defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove (first eight games of 2012), Saints defensive end Will Smith (four games) and Browns linebacker Scott Fujita (three games).
