Saints Place Vilma on IR

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Well, he'll be a coach now. I wonder if he really was hurt. Perhaps this move was a way to free up his $ over for salary cap purposes....

Wow, so he can wait until week 14 to activate or IR him. Wow, thats a lot of rehab time. 7 months of rehab. He could be ready for a postseason run.
I think they keep Victor on the shelf until next season & allow that knee to heal properly.

I cant recall where I read it but he is already running and cutting on the knee; getting into "football shape".

Re: Saints Place Vilma on IR

Thank you JV for your leadership and your passion for the Saints. I think we've seen the last of him but he was a great player for us during iur SB year. Maybe he'll go into coaching?

Re: Saints Place Vilma on IR

The Saints are rich in its short history of outstanding linebackers...

He has the distinction of being the leader of the first defense to win a Superbowl for New Orleans...

He may have been from the "U", but Vilma gets an "A" in my book...

Thank You, Jon Vilma

Re: Saints Place Vilma on IR

By the by, from his Wikipedia bio...

"Along with his success on the field, Vilma was a three-time Academic All-Big East Conference (with) a Bachelor's degree in finance from the University of Miami's School of Business Administration."

That's not Hotel Administration nor Sports Management Studies ladies, that's a degree in Finance - very impressive resume' adding "Champion Linebacker"...
