Payton spent the first 5 minutes of Thursday presser
talking about Vilma
Basically said it was worth the chance (using the IR return designation) for a player of Vilma's caliber.
Another player I hope we see attached to the Saints in the future in some capacity. There's quality players and there are quality players that are quality people. Thanks JV for your role in defining what championship football is in nawlins.
I like how Payton said "He's one of those players you have to drag off the field." Mentioned Brian Young as similar, who now is on the Saints coaching staff. "Bring me all the Jon Vilma's you have."
