Well and the whole "10000 on Favre" seems to be the smoking gun. Hargrove didn't help him much with the now famous "Favre is out the game" clip! That craps going to follow us for ever!

We'll have to cut him to free up a roster spot... then who is going to sign him to let him sit out those games waiting for the suspension to be over.
Suspended players don't count against the 53 man squad.

Vilma is in big doo-doo. I reckon suspended for a year.

Others? Well the other profile 3; maybe 6 games. Plus a game suspension for EACH fine for violent play in the period 2009-2011 to the (then) Saints player involved.

Once players begin suspension, they DO NOT count against the cap.

Oh yeah. You can be cut anytime.

That is true because they aren't collecting paychecks! But they do take up a roster spot, they do not count on the active game roster though.

The Saints would free up more cap if Vilma was suspended then they would if they cut Vilma - a suspended player's base salary will not be counted towards the salary cap, only bonuses, which in Vilma's case would only amount to a $1.2M cap hit freeing up $5.4M in cap space.
