Your daily collection of New Orleans Saints news and opinion. TODAY'S HEADLINE: All four players suspended for Bountyfarce file appeals.

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire


Per the CBA, the appeals for the 4 bounty players will be heard a week from Tuesday. Of course, parties could agree to another date as well.

Plot thickens with that detail ... Vilma eligible to come off PUP next week, could play against the Bucs on 10/21, before appeal is heard.

The commissioner stepping aside in an appeal in a case of conduct detrimental, to the knowledge of some involved, would be unprecedented.
