    Saints nearing Vilma

    The Saints are close to finalizing a deal that will bring middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma to the team in a trade with the New York Jets, league sources said.

    The deal could be announced as early as later Thursday night or sometime on Friday.

    Vilma, 6 foot 1, 230 pounds, is a four-year NFL veteran.

    He played in nine games for New York, his season shortened by knee surgery. He had 43 total tackles in the nine games he played in 2007 for the Jets.


    As a big time Jets fan its sad to see him go becuase he was once "the future" of our team but Mangini feels otherwise. Hope we get decent value either some OLB/DE or picks...

    Great work N.O. you just snuck one by the NFL
    They probably will end up giving up a 2nd.

    No, we better give Colston, Evans, and Big Willie contracts before Vilma.

    Depends if he comes back healthy and returns to form now that he's in a 4-3.

    I would have liked that.. Better than Meachem sitting on the bench all year long..What a waist.. I pray to god he steps up and does something this year. I would love for him to make me eat my words on this matter.

    The funny thing is we seriously considered taking David Harris at 27 last year.

    Ideally, I'd like to have Briggs at MLB and Vilma WLB. But given the experience each player has, it's probably best to have it the other way around.

    As for the trade, Vilma is a perfect fit for the Saints, and Harris is perfect for Mangenius' defense. I think so on both accounts.

    Ha ha no we have to make a run at Briggs. Nothing is for sure on when Vilma will be ready.. And if Vilma gets back to 100% by the start of the season our LB core would finally be worth talking about.

    No, I was referring to whoever thinks it was a bad trade...I don't know your specific stance, but if you think it was a bad trade then yea it was addressed at you, if not, then it wasn't.

    And teddginn, I'm sure you did, you love the concise posts and I love the long ones. :)
