On the road

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The NFL owners meetings are over, but the saga of the New Orleans Saints is not.

We still don’t know if coach Sean Payton will appeal his suspension, which is scheduled to start next week. We still don’t know who the Saints will put in Payton’s place if the suspension takes hold and we probably won’t know until next week at the earliest if the NFL will be disciplining players who were involved in the bounty program.

The owners and coaches seem to have cleared out of here. I’m going to get on the road and head back toward NFC South Blog headquarters. Keep an eye on the headlines section of our main NFL page for any news developments. If anything major happens, I’ll pull over and weigh in.

And, of course, I’ll be watching out for any signs of Payton or Bill Parcells as I make my way out of South Florida.
