During the tweet exchange, King implied the suspension was the reason for the acquisition of Lofton, Chamberlain, and Hawthorne.
“@SI_PeterKing: Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain, David Hawthorne. Get the message, Jonathan Vilma?”
@JonVilma51: that u know how to type peoples names?? reckless journalism is beneath you sir. You’ve become a glorified blogger
@SI_PeterKing: It’s the NFL investigation, Jonathan. Not me.
@JonVilma51: the nfl investigation has NOTHING to do with ur tweet. You’ve now turned into a blogger who takes shots at players on twitter
@SI_PeterKing not going to go back and forth with you, enjoy your night sir.
It remains to be seen whether Jonathan Vilma will take the field this season or whether the loss of his services will be related to legal wrangling or injury woes.
What is evident is Vilma’s will fight anything or anyone to rejoin his team and make a difference this year. For that, no one can fault him.
