NFL Update July 9: Cameron Sutton's Punishment

Cameron Sutton suspended for eight games

Cameron Sutton (CB, Steelers) is definitely having a hectic offseason. Sanctioned for violating the league's good conduct policy, the cornerback will be suspended for eight games, and will not be able to return to the field until October 29.

Buccaneers: A new Bountygate?

After the scandal that hit the Saints, the Buccaneers could be at the heart of a bountygate. During the podcast The Water Boyz Show, former Falcons pass rusher John Abraham reveals a surprising anecdote about Greg Schiano, former Buccaneers coach. He claims that ex-Buccaneers player Donald Penn warned the pass rusher to intentionally injure their opponents. The threats were reportedly revealed during the last game of the year, as Atlanta was heading to the playoffs.

Contacted by JoeBucsFan.com, Penn denies the allegations. While Schiano is known for his tough calls, it should be remembered that former Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended by the NFL for setting injury bounties in New Orleans.
