Text Wednesday of the statement issued by NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith on penalties issued by the NFL for players involved in the New Orleans Saints' pay-for-performance/bounty program:

After seeing the NFL's decision letters, the NFLPA has still not received any detailed or specific evidence from the league of these specific players' involvement in an alleged pay-to-injure program. We have made it clear that punishment without evidence is not fair. We have spoken with our players and their representatives and we will vigorously protect and pursue all options on their behalf.
