Nashville, Tenn. -- As suspended New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma prepares for another round of hearings on Thursday, his legal team is confident it can convince an appeals board that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell overstepped his boundaries by ruling on and handing down such harsh penalties against four current and former Saints players for their roles in what the NFL has called a pay-for-performance bounty scheme.

An appeals board made up of retired federal judges Fern Smith and Richard Howell and Georgetown Law professor James Oldham will hear the players' appeal of system arbitrator Stephen Burbank. The hearing will be held in New York.
