The Saints have had a controversy-plagued offseason, from the bounty scandal to alleged wiretapping by GM Mickey Loomis.
According to Pro Football Talk, the club and owner Tom Benson brought in former FBI director Louis Freeh to conduct a “top-to-bottom investigation" of the Saints.
In an email to PFT, Saints spokesman Greg Bensel explained Freeh’s role.
“Serious allegations have been made about our organization this off-season; we take these allegations very seriously. As a result, we have hired the Freeh Group, founded by former director of the FBI and former federal judge Louis Freeh. Mr. Benson moved quickly to hire them and has spared no expense to get to the bottom of these allegations. We have given the Freeh Group complete access to our team and all of the individuals who have been associated with this news story.”
