New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma plans on coming off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list this week and playing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. If only the story was that simple.

Today, Vilma and three other players (Will Smith, Scott Fujita, Anthony Hargrove) suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for their alleged role in “bountygate,” filed motions to vacate an arbitration award. Essentially, all 4 players are anticipating that the league will uphold their suspensions after the appeal process is completed. Goodell is scheduled to hear the appeals on Tuesday, October 23rd.

Peter Ginsberg, Vilma’s lawyer, filed a 29-page motion In New Orleans court today to vacate Jonathan’s season-long suspension.

Despite being busy in the court system, Vilma plans on making his first appearance on the field this Sunday.

“I’ll be allowed to practice,” explained Vilma in an interview with WVUE-TV.  “I’ll be allowed to play versus Tampa Bay.”
