Imagine getting Butler and Vilma back for the homestretch and the playoffs.

Damn. I have been saying this since he got hurt. I think it will end up being total IR & he has played his last with the Saints.

I am glad it was not Tanner. Sorry I am rooting for the kid.

I would've guessed that the Saints would've picked up another OLB with the open spot. Some one like Jay Richardson maybe.

Gotta say - seeing that pic of Meachem in a Saints uni brings back some good memories.

Yeah, not sure I agree with this. Lose a LB and sign a WR if indeed Vilma goes to IR with return.

@LarryHolder: The reported Vilma to IR/designate to return would open up a roster spot for Meachem.

So formally Meachem can't ink that deal until Vilma is moved.

How about another intriguing twist

@LarryHolder: RT @HBalzer721: Significant news: The Rams cut LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar today from the suspended list.

Had a ton of ILBs on the roster anyway. Seems like a logical spot to subtract one.

I don't for a second believe that Vilma is so injured that they feel he needs to be on IR; otherwise he wouldn't have made the 53-man roster to begin with. This is just a way of opening up a roster spot without having to actually cut somebody.

Goodness gracious, guys. We have one of the best GM/scouting departments in the league along with one of the best coaching staffs. Give it a rest. Coach Payton has already said that they refuse to sign someone "just to be signing someone". You can bet your bottom dollar that every stone has been turned in search of help at EVERY position, including OLB. If there is someone out there that can help it has been or will be explored. In the mean time, we have a WR that knows our signals and playbook and is a year removed from being a stud deep threat for us. It only "doesn't make sense" if you're a bit behind on how things work.
