Saints players that could be suspended;impact on the season
 
With the dramatic and what some are calling harsh suspensions for the New Orleans Saints coaching staff, the worst may be yet to come. Suspensions and possible fines that are coming for players could also hamper the season for the team.

One name that keeps coming up over and over is linebacker Jonathan Vilma. Vilma has been the one player that is clearly named in the investigation and will likely face a lengthy suspension from the NFL.

While some analysts have Vilma as being suspended for up to six games, it wouldn’t be a huge shocker if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to extend the suspension to eight games or even the whole year.

If that sounds harsh, look at the penalties that were just handed down to head coach Sean Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis, linebacker coach Joe Vitt, and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Vilma isn’t alone though in what would be a range of suspensions that could severely decimate the defensive unit of the Saints and also the impact it could have on the season.

Unless Goodell has a list of how much each player was paid and for what, it will be extremely difficult for him to punish players like he did coaches & the GM.

Here is a list of the ones I could find, but I am not sure of the credibility of the source. New-Orleans-Saints Salaries | New-Orleans-Saints Player Salaries | 2012 New-Orleans-Saints Salary

Jonathan Vilma 5,400,000
Scott Shanle 1,750,000
Martez Wilson 509,000
Will Herring 1,300,000
Will Smith 825,000
Sedrick Ellis 5,816,000
Junior Galette 490,000
Cameron Jordan 726,427
Tom Johnson 465,000
Malcolm Jenkins 1,092,000
Jabari Greer 5,400,000
Roman Harper 4,500,000
Patrick Robinson 527,500
Isa Abdul-Quddus 465,000


Total cap space = $29,265,927

Thats an awful lot of dough to spend elsewhere.

having two players on the field that suck is better than two great players standing on the sidelines.

he'd better suspend a lot of them and for the year... we end up getting to the SB its going to be embarrassing for him.

Although the way our Defense played the past 2 years hell suspend them just for that. We may actually have a chance... lol.
