Saints' Vilma arrives for meeting with Goodell


NEW YORK (AP) - Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has arrived for his meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his suspension that was temporarily lifted. Vilma and lawyer Peter Ginsberg came to NFL headquarters shortly before 2 p.m. Monday.

As he entered the building, Vilma said he has "no expectations right now." Vilma was one of four players suspended in the bounty scandal. But an appeals panel this month said Goodell must clarify his rulings to ensure no part of his decisions was based on salary cap violations. Goodell is to meet with the four players.

Vilma, suspended for the entire season, requested a separate meeting. New Orleans defensive end Will Smith, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive end Anthony Hargrove are expected to have their meeting Tuesday.
