At that point, teams have a five-week window in which to allow the player to begin practicing; from the day the player begins practicing, teams have an additional 21-day window in which to decide whether to activate the player to the 53-man roster. If either of those deadlines pass, the player must remain on the PUP list for the remainder of the season.[1]


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.
2014 post season? We are going 7-9 this season.

Not progressing enough to keep him off IR.

It was more in reference to career/long term situations.

That statement from Payton is damage control. Vilma was off IR for what... 8 plays? Then back on.

You are a fine man who lead this team to a Superbowl. Thank you for all that you did for us including standing up to Roger Godhell. Class act.

Re: Saints Place Vilma on IR

On the field, Vilma became the leader of the defense from day one. He was as much of a coach as a player, calling audibles and adjusting defenses on the fly. There's not many players that can do that, let alone do it at the level that Vilma could.

Off the field, I respected the way he stood up for himself with Roger Goodell and didn't just roll over and take it. A lot of players, probably most, would've just accepted what was handed them and hoped for mercy. Vilma put doubt in a lot of peoples minds about the garbage Goodell was trying to sell. Even a federal judge believed Vilma was right and thought the NFL claim was bogus.

I'm sorry to see him go. I'll have to get myself a Vilma jersey.
