Vilma move: The Saints have placed Jon Vilma on the 'PUP' (physically unable to perform) list. This was expected, given his injury. It was also expected when you consider that they had to make a decision after getting the roster exemption for week one from the NFL after Vilma's suspension was vacated by the arbitration panel.
Jon was battling that knee injury, and this gives him an opportunity to make sure he gets well if and when they put him back on the field. And I say "if and when," because as we've been telling you, Vilma could very well be re-suspended again very quickly by Goodell after the arbitration panel punted the whole thing back to the Commish. So, while this is expected news, Saints fans should be prepared for Vilma to be kicked off the roster AGAIN by the NFL.
AA: Adrian Arrington is back on the squad. That's no surprise, after Devery Henderson went down with what was believed to be a head injury. That leaves the saints a little thin at WR in this week's game against the Carolina Panthers. Not to mention, the Saints signed AA AFTER week one, so they don't have to guarantee his salary for the entire season, per league rules. They could make yet another move with AA on down the line if and when Henderson gets healthy, or at any point that it suits the team..
Good news: Johnny Patrick’s knee injury is not as bad as once thought. The team might get him back in a couple of weeks.
