All Saints* players' suspensions have been overturned

Let 1 other newb add a question as the 1st newb lived - could we get him at a decent price considering a boatload of teams have no doubt lit his phone up? Or would it be better to just focus on the Capt issue and getting that resolved 1st? *Tenses ready to run a first sign of the knives coming out*

the packers signed him but they were hardly betting their season on him. Can he play? yes. Will there be a team desperate enough to sign him with all the baggage? I don't think so and I don't think his phones are burning up either. why risk team chemistry for a backup DL facing an uncertain future when there are a ton of better options out there?

maybe after week one when contracts aren't guaranteed someone will take a flier.

Wait I heard the Packers released him in final cuts?

Still someone gunna take a chance on him. Someone took Vick back. That said I do hope its not us.

to be honest I don't know when he was cut. I thought it was earlier. but even if he lasted to final cuts he is competing with at least 60-100 players with similar or better potential that are in the same boat.

does not compare in the least with vickie.

Let me educate all of you AGAIN!

First of all I have told you all along that GODELL would be proven wrong. He jumped to conclusions, tried to make a case that wasn't there, lied about evidence and more. He needs to be kicked out of the league. Not only are the players free but it won't be long before Payton is back. Not that they will need him, especially early in the season. There first few games are the easier part of their schedule.

Second, for all of you who are saying the Saints** are in trouble with the cap please check the numbers and get back to me. They are under by more than enough to bring back players.

Third, for all of you who think the players won't be ready please please have a clue. Will Smith has played in every preseason game and has practiced the entire time so he will be as ready as any player. Vilma is hurt but Lofton is a much player player than Vilma and the Saints** D overall is significantly improved.

What an amazing day for the Saints** organization. I have a feeling it is just the beginning of what will be a storybook year ending in a Super Bowl championship with Godell having to give the trophy to a reinstated Sean Peyton.

This is freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This whole thing was a "cover you ass" scenario by the NFL because of the concussion lawsuits. The NFL wanted to show that they were "serious" about player safety. (Yet they didn't care before the concussion lawsuits started rolling in). So they over-stepped their bounds by implementing these suspensions. Good for the Saints* players for fighting this.

So does the Commish have strong enough evidence of the "conduct detrimental" variety to withstand legal scrutiny? I'm thinking that Dog the Bounty Hunter slide gets a few giggles in court.

And even if he decides to let it stand as a pay for performance violation (which is the one thing that everyone agrees actually happened) and settles for fining the players, the only piece of physical evidence shown so far that supports cash payouts - the Pamphilon video - actually captures the players being offered money shouting "put it back [in the pot]," so the players could potentially finagle out of that one too.

Incidentally, I don't think the NFL or Goodell has it out for my team, and in all likelyhood Goodell's intentions were purely to protect the brand, even if the financial considerations of the impending concussion lawsuits were the overiding factor. Unfortunately I think he backed himself into a corner by overstating his case and now it's a battle over leverage with the NFLPA.
