According to ESPNs Adam Schefter, Saints players have won their appeal case resulting from the "Bounty Gate" scandal.

Four Saints players including middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith have won their appeal case against then NFL, voiding their suspensions and allowing for immediate reinstatement.

Minutes after the news broke, outspoken linebacker Jonathan Vilma responded on Twitter.

The immediate reinstatement means players will be allowed to play in Sunday's game against Washington.

There is no word as of right now of whether players can or will be re-suspended, or how this appeal victory will affect the suspensions of members of the Saints coaching staff.
