Tebow's a Jet and the Saints Were Apparently Really Naughty

In a matter of minutes, the NFL caught my Twitter feed on fire by lowering the hammer on the New Orleans Saints and announcing that Tim Tebow has been traded to the New York Jets for a 4th Round draft pick.

Initial reports that I heard yesterday on Tebow-to-the-Jets were that the Jets locker room need the morale boost and attitude adjustment more so than they need Tebow's services at quarterback. With Mark Sanchez signing an extension with the team, it's clear Tebow's role will be vastly different (okay, less important) in the green-and-white than it was in Denver.

And as for our 2009 NFCC buddies, it appears as though Commisioner Roger Goodell didn't hold back. Here are the suspensions within the Saints organization following the investigation into the "bounty" fiasco:

HC Sean Payton: done for the year, no pay

Former DC Gregg Williams (now with St. Louis): suspended indefinitely, no word yet on details

Asst. HC Joe Vitt: six games, no pay

GM Mickey Loomis: eight games, $500,000 fine

The cherry on top is the additional $500,000 fine on the Saints organization itself and being stripped of their 2012 and 2013 2nd Round draft picks. What do they call this? Schadenfreude?
