Holy Saint! Bounty Suspensions Lifted, Players Available for Season Opener

Several players are free to play the season after a panel overturned their bounty suspensions.

Here’s the breakdown:

New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma was suspended for the season.

Defensive end Will Smith was suspended for the first four games.

Former New Orleans Saint and current Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita was suspended for three games.

All three men are now free to play this weekend as their suspensions have been overturned by a three-member appeals panel comprised of retired federal Judge Fern Smith of San Francisco, retired federal Judge Richard Howell of New York, and Georgetown professor James Oldham

The league issued a statement saying, “Consistent with the panel’s decision, Commissioner Goodell will, as directed, make an expedited determination of the discipline imposed for violating the league’s pay-for-performance/bounty rule. Until that determination is made, the four players are reinstated and eligible to play starting this weekend.”

Shortly after, Vilma tweeted this message:

Victory, indeed.
