Vilma Unhappy About Lockout

New Orleans Saints pro-bowl middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma is unhappy about the current NFL lockout. He recently spoke with Saints beat writer James Varney of the Times Picayune about a number of topics. Here is more from Varney from the TP and nola.com.

“It’s never a good look for the game,” he said. “It’s never a good look for the fans to have the players and the owners arguing over money, and so hopefully we can get it worked out as soon as possible and get back playing.”

Before the Saints’ 2009 championship season, Vilma signed a five-year deal. His status as the team’s defensive captain remains unchallenged after last season, in which he started all 16 games. His 131 tackles led New Orleans for the third consecutive season, and offered further proof, if any were needed, that the Saints made a superb move when they acquired Vilma from the Jets for a fourth-round pick in 2008.

In Vilma’s case, the lockout hasn’t really hampered his schedule. The Miami native, and University of Miami alum, still has Miami as his base, and he said his workouts there have followed the precise trajectory they would have if there were no lockout.

“That’s what I’d normally be doing anyway, so this time isn’t all that unsettling for me,” he said.

When Heath Evans was on my program last week, he informed us that Drew Brees has setup offseason workouts for the offense. Jonathan Vilma would be the Saint to setup offseason workouts for the defense. Hopefully the lockout doesn’t stretch into late July, but in case it does, let’s hope Vilma has the defense working out together.
