Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue has vacated all discipline issued to New Orleans Saints players in the wake of the so-called bounty scandal.

According to ESPN, Tagliabue affirmed the findings of the NFL investigation, but he chose to vacate all player discipline.

On the NFL investigation, Taglibue said the findings "could certainly justify the issuance of the fines. However, this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints' organization."
