Saints Jonathan Vilma Suspended For A Year By NFL
Here we go again Saint fans. After head coach Sean Payton was suspended for a year for the bounty scandal, more punishment has been handed down by the NFL now to the players.
In addition to Vilma, defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove (now with the Green Bay Packers) was suspended eight games, defensive Will Smith four games and linebacker Scott Fujita (now with the Cleveland Browns) three games.
All four player suspensions will be appealed, according to NFL source who told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, “get ready for a massive multiple legal battle over this on several fronts.”
The appeals will be heard by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
I know I am shaking my head too! We will have to see how this effects the upcoming season.
