Source: Vilma Would Meet With Goodell
Back during the time suspended players could appeal NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision as a result of the alleged bounty system by the New Orleans Saints, Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma walked out on Goodell, calling the entire affair a charade.
Now, espn.com is reporting Vilma’s lawyer, Peter Ginsburg, is saying Vilma is now willing to meet.
Ginsburg sent the unofficial notice to the league office via email. He is expected to make the formal request today.
Vilma had requested a meeting in August, but cancelled before ever appearing.
Vilma won an injunction against the suspension along with suspended players Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita.
The Saints linebacker was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list yesterday.
