Saints Players Win Appeal

Per Adam Schefter's tweet:

With Saints winning appeal, suspensions are voided as Roger Goodell doesn't have jurisdiction and Stephen Burbank does.

Will Smith is starting.


Vilma's coming off a couple of knee surgeries so it doesn't matter, he'll be rusty and slow.

Sources -- Suspensions for Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita, Anthony Hargrove overturned by arbitration panel - ESPN

Per ESPN. They playing this week?

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

So this has no impact on Payton's (and Vitt's) suspension? Interesting that the players will be cleared but the coach has to sit out an entire year...

Guess not... I remember Payton accepting his punishment, seems like a bad call in hindsight. I didn't know if the arbitrator had authority to vacate all suspensions or just those of the players appealing.

Good for them. The league went overboard with these suspensions.

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

I'm going to play conspiracy theorist for a second, even though I don't really believe it:

Doesn't it seem weird for the NFL to do come to this decision 2 days before our game against the saints? It seems very similar to the way they hit the Skins with the salary cap penalty right before free agency.
