By James Varney, The Times-Picayune

New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, about a week shy of his 29th birthday, is in his prime, getting rich and coming off his third Pro Bowl season.

But he can't help being disappointed by a lockout and court battle that has, for now, derailed football.

"Unfortunately it hasn't gone the way I wanted, just because I want to play football," Vilma said Saturday after a promotional appearance for Perry Ellis at Lakeside Mall. "We always talk about, 'the business side of football,' and we just try to get over these hurdles as quickly and as smoothly as possible."

this guy became one of my favorite players quick. I think he's the best LB we've had since the dome patrol days.

Vilma is a great LB, one of the smartest players that we've had on the team, his work ethic and skill level are only matched by one other, Brees.
One thing that comes to mind when people mention vilma, is that in the NFCCG, he was the guy responsible for porters pick of favre cuz he changed the coverage scheme at the last second, there's a smart player for ya.
