Jonathan Vilma announces retirement from professional playing career

Im excited to be retiring from my playing career as a member of the New Orleans Saints, said Vilma. I loved everything about being a Saint and was fortunate to be surrounded by so many outstanding coaches and teammates for six years and to be a part of the team that won Super Bowl XLIV. I would also like to thank our fans for making my playing career in New Orleans so memorable. I will never forget the amazing fans here and the experiences we shared together.

I hope he goes in to coaching. I think he could be a good one.

Seen him on Pro Football talk a few times with Florio and I think he has a solid future in broadcasting if he so chooses to pursue that.

Stephane Anthony balled out today... Vilma must have lit a fire under his a$$.

Vilma needs to added to the Saints coaching staff. The Saints defense sure could benefit from a guy like Vilma!

Joe Horn, Jon Vilma, Drew Brees ... we need to get back to signing other team's castoffs that are relatively cheap and have the potential to take that next step in their career.

He was our defensive leader when we won our first Superbowl.
