Re: VILMA is finally a Saint.

I am making a prediction that linebacker will not be our 1st round pick in the draft.

Re: Jets May Have Already Dealt Vilma To Saints

welcome aboard Cal. You have a couple of other west coasters here also.
Now if this works out this could be a great deal. I forsee him sitting for at least half the season rehabing. Driving down the draft pick. We did it with Mech so why not him? We got all the other LB back now so it will not hurt us to sit him and let him get healthy.

Great news to wake up to. NOW, I am all for getting a CB in the first, LB in the second (If DRC is not avail.)

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Source: Jets ship Vilma to Saints

Jonathan Vilma finally got his wish — to get out from under Jets head coach Eric Mangini.

The Jets have agreed in principle to send the Pro Bowl linebacker to the New Orleans Saints for a conditional draft pick based on Vilma's playing time, as he's coming off major knee surgery.

Although there had been reports that the Lions were the frontrunners to acquire Vilma, ultimately the Saints came away with the 6-foot-1, 230 pounder.

New Orleans tried to sign Zach Thomas, who eventually signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys last week.

Vilma stared in the 4-3 scheme but struggled when Mangini installed the 3-4 when he came to New York in 2006. A knee injury sidelined Vilma for much of the 2007 season and required surgery.

The four-year pro has started 53 games with six interceptions, five forced fumbles and 2½ sacks. He also won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2004.

I have been SCREAMING this since we started talking about the draft and you guys have been crushing my NUTZ about it!!!! What the H*LL!!!

God I love Saints Fans, from one minute to the next we really don't know what we want.
