Found April 03, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
Jonathan Vilma and Peter King traded a few shots over Twitter Tuesday after King pointed out that the Saints were signing linebackers to prepare for potential bounty suspensions. The Sports Illustrated NFL writer singled out Vilma with this tweet: Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain, David Hawthorne. Get the message, Jonathan Vilma? — Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) April 3, 2012 King sent the message shortly after the Saints signed linebacker David Hawthorne. Vilma played dumb, responding to King “that u know how to type peoples names??” Vilma then called King a blogger, saying he was doing “reckless journalism.” @SI_PeterKing the nfl investigation has NOTHING to do with ur tweet. You’ve now turned into a blogger who takes shots at players on twitter — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) April 4, 2012 King reminded Vilma that his anger was misdirected, saying “It’s the NFL investigation, Jonathan. Not me.” Vilma is playing dumb here and he is wrong. Vilma was singled out as a player who led ...

Vilma, Saints prepare for possible bountygate charges

According to the Associated Press, the NFLPA has told players that will be interviewed by the NFL with regards to the bountygate scandal that it would be in those players' best interests to have a lawyer and a union representative present during any meetings with the league.

Sean Payton and The Saints: Appealing and making a huge miscalculation

The New Orleans Saints are quickly becoming the bad boys of the NFL. Just recently, Sean Payton indicated how sorry he was for the bounty program that Gregg Williams ran as the Saints defensive coordinator. But Payton has eschewed his position and is filing an appeal of his suspension of one year that was handed out by Commissioner Roger Goodell. Why file an appeal if you’ve already...

Since the NFL announced that Sean Payton has been suspended for a full year as a result of the Saints bounty program, Payton has had plenty of supporters.

Goodell won’t prevent Saints from hiring Bill Parcells

In what has become rare for the team these days — fortunate news — there is one less roadblock to worry about in the Saints’ pursuit to rustle Bill Parcells out of retirement as the substitute head coach.

St. Louis Rams Sign Ex-Saints LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar

The St. Louis Rams have signed their eighth free agent this offseason. Jo-Lonn Dunbar, 27, spent his first four seasons in the league with the New Orleans Saints after joining the team as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Boston College in 2008. Albeit the very versatile and perhaps slightly undersized veteran linebacker (6-0, 226 lbs.) won’t be reunited with his former defensive...
