The NFL Players Association has agreed to meet with the NFL in New York this week to review and discuss the findings in two confidential reports the league provided the union on the New Orleans Saints "bounty" scandal, according to SI.com.

A source told NFL.com's Steve Wyche on Friday that the league had contacted the NFLPA to let the union know it was willing to share additional details from its investigation.

Regardless of the information in those reports, however, the union still might not recommend specific discipline for the players who allegedly participated in the "bounty" program, a source familiar with the situation told SI.com on Saturday.

"We haven't ruled out anything," George Atallah, the NFLPA's assistant executive director for external affairs, told the website. "Right now, we are focused on obtaining the right information and making sure players have a fair due process."

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell already has suspended Saints coach Sean Payton for the 2012 season, general manager Mickey Loomis for eight games and assistant coach Joe Vitt for six games.
