The NFL insists it has evidence galore in the New Orleans Saints bounty program, and even made some of it public on Monday. The players and lawyers involved weren't impressed.

After a series of stinging rebukes from federal judges, the NFL has a significant, favorable ruling in hand from a higher court.

"We're confident we will get it done," Pash said. "I think we're getting close to the point where we'll have a package that's satisfactory. Our overriding goal is that both sides get this structure in place so we can begin providing compensation to people who need it."
NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said the league remains optimistic that a U.S. district judge will approve the $765 million concussion settlement with former players.
