Vilma lawsuit puts Goodell on the run

Based on the advice of my legal counsel, which really was a five-line Gchat with my lawyer friend, I am not attempting to assert any facts that have been neither confirmed nor denied and which may or may not be substantiated by true events, if any, about Jonathan Vilma.

This week’s twist comes from discussions that CBS Sports’ Mike Freeman had with a few “angry”, “tired and determined” Saints players. In his discussions with the players, one believes that the Saints are being “railroaded”...

Saints Nation: Top 5 Free Agents the Saints Should Look At

With the Saints roster mostly set and training camp around the corner, I thought I'd identify 5 available free agents that would greatly help the team's depth at a somewhat affordable price. For what it's worth, Dallas Clark was on this list until he signed with the Buccaneers earlier this week. 1. Drew Coleman, CB - Coleman has played for the Jags and Jets, and...

Saints Nation's Phone Interview With Mike Karney

Saints Nation: Wifi in the Dome? YES PLEASE!
