New Orleans Saints reported to have some nice space in salary cap

The way it’s looking now, the NFL shut down the claim by Vilma that he can’t rehab his injured knee with the Saints trainers.  He would just have to do it at a private facility and possibly at his own cost.

What is really scary is the reports that Vilma’s knee rehabilitation is moving slowly and he has resorted to drastic measures such as flying to Germany to have his blood drawn, spun to get the anti-inflammatories out, then injected back into is knee.

Even if Vilma were to not be suspended for the season, the most likely place he would go is the Physically Unable to Perform(PUP) list or to the dreaded Injured Reserve list as not to risk further damage.

Vilma’s injunction hearing for a restraining order against his suspension is set for July 26.  If a judgement is reached quickly and the order is denied, it wouldn’t be that shocking to see the Saints make a few moves in free agency right after.

    In away its good but I would love to see Vilma able to finish his career with the New Orleans Saints the truth look like its going to be swept under the rug. But sooner or later the truth going to come out but Vilma you put up a good fight the New Orleans Saints fanbase still love you.

     You’re right LJ.  Would be nice to see Vilma finish his career as a Saint and surely don’t wish it’s over.  However, he’s run out of options at this point and it doesn’t look good.  Like I said in the article, even if he wasn’t suspended, his knee might not be in any shape to go full bore this season regardless.  We’ll see though.
