Saints | Were bracing for short Sean Payton suspension

The New Orleans Saints and head coach Sean Payton specifically expected a four-game suspension for the team's bounty program, according to a league source. A plan already had been concocted for getting the interim head coach ready to take the reins, and Payton would have hunkered down and spent the month preparing for the games to be played later in the season. Payton, however, was suspended for the entire 2012 season.
