    The NFL is fielding plenty of questions into its investigation of the New Orleans Saints and their alleged bounty program. But the league won't field additional queries from Congress. "The NFL has taken the issue of bounties in professional football seriously and has been open and willing to take additional steps to protect player safety and football's integrity," Illinois Senator twinky Durbin, the Democratic Whip, said Wednesday. "Because of that willingness to address the issue, and due to the reforms the league is announcing after meeting with me today, I will withhold Congressional hearings on this matter and continue to work with the league and its players to ensure the league's rules are sufficient and that nothing like these bounty programs ever happens again."
