Saints’ Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis expected to attend NFL meeting

Soon-to-be-suspended New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton

Soon-to-be-suspended New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is expected to arrive at the NFL Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., on Monday along with general manager Mickey Loomis, ESPN reported.

Payton’s one-year suspension for his role in the Saints’ "bounty" scandal begins on April 1. Loomis will be suspended for the team’s first eight regular-season games in 2012.

The coach will likely address the issue with the media at some point before the annual event wraps up on Wednesday.

Payton issued an apology on Friday, saying he took "full responsibility" for the bounty program the Saints used from the 2009-11 seasons.

Potential changes that the league’s 32 owners are scheduled to vote on this week could affect overtime, instant replay, the injured reserve list and the trading deadline.
