Saint's Vilma May Have Cooked His Own Goose

Slow day on the forum so why not -

If he gets suspended for half the season which I expect him to be, I think hes gone.I wonder how many players theyre going to lose over this.?

The Saints have shown interest in Curtis Lofton, a league source said Thursday, adding to a growing list of linebackers the team has scheduled interviews with.

Multiple outlets also are reporting that David Hawthorne and Joe Mays.

Lofton, 25, is scheduled to visit with New Orleans this coming weekend.

In four years with Atlanta as the team's middle linebacker, Lofton compiled 492 tackles, four sacks, 15 passes defensed and three interceptions.

The move could mean the Saints are beginning to look at moving on from Jonathan Vilma. At 29, Vilma is older and has had more wear and tear on his body. He spent five weeks this season sidelined with a knee injury that eventually required surgery.

But just as important as Vilma's health is that he has a large salary cap figure, upwards of $7.6 million this year and $8.1 million next year.

My question is, how do the Saints continue to be able to sign free agents?

They must be pulling every last cent out of the couch cushions. They can't have much cap room left.

I expect Vilma to be suspended indefinitely.

I just hope that if those 22-27 players are suspended less than 8 games then we get at least one game versus the saints early in the season. It would suck if we ended up playing them 2 times in 4 weeks late in the season like with the Falcons last year.

Not saying I don't think we can beat the Taints with their starters, just that I'd take that gimme W against their scab team any day of the week.

if multiple starters are suspended, they will spread them out over the whole year so they are not crippled.
