King drew criticism from Vilma’s fans and even those that follow King for calling Vilma out amidst the current controversy that is surrounding him and his career.
Vilma tweeted King again calling him a blogger who takes shots at players and then ended with this:
@JonVilma51: @SI_PeterKing not going to go back and forth with you, enjoy your night sir.
Let’s be honest here though Saints fans. If you didn’t think the same thing when you read that Hawthorne had signed, then you’re lying to yourself.
Now, was it appropriate for King to make the remark? Not really. Now if it was CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco, I would have understood and just shrugged it off.
Surprisingly, Prisco tweeted he actually liked the move made by the Saints. I know Who Dats, shocking. I’m waiting for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to ride through as I write this.
Not trying to make excuses for Vilma for his alleged role in the scandal, but we are talking about his career here. His injuries and football shelf life aren’t easing the already critical situation he’s in.
