WASHINGTON (AP) — A high-ranking Senator will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to talk about bounties in professional football.

The office of Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, says he and Goodell will meet for about 15 minutes Wednesday, then appear together at a news conference.

The NFL has suspended players and coaches who were with the New Orleans Saints when the league says the team's bounty system was in place from 2009-11, awarding cash for big hits.

On Monday, players Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma attended appeals hearings with Goodell.
