BREAKING: Saints Facing ‘Biggest Discipline Yet’ After NFL Discovered Major COVID Protocol Violations
The New Orleans Saints are in some serious trouble.
The franchise is facing major discipline once again for violations of the NFL’s policies on COVID-19 which may have contributed in running back Alvin Kamara testing positive for the virus and missing the team’s Week 17 game.
Video shows interaction in the facility with a person not employed by the club who turned out to be positive. Kamara was only able to return for the wild-card round because of a favorable scheduling decision.
The Saints previously were fined $250,000 and coach Sean Payton $100,000 for failing to properly wear face coverings in Week 2.
The team found themselves being fined $500K as well as being stripped of a seventh-round pick for a mask-less celebration following its Week 9 win.
This latest violation may lead to even more picks taken as well as bigger fines.
