Saints | Jonathan Vilma files new lawsuit

New Orleans Saints LB Jonathan Vilma is suing the NFL in federal court, claiming commissioner Roger Goodell failed to make a timely appeal ruling regarding Vilma's season-long suspension in connection with the league's bounty investigation. The lawsuit also asks for a temporary restraining order to allow Vilma to continue working if Goodell upholds the suspension. The suit contends Goodell has undermined "the integrity of the NFL and the Commissioner's office" by handing down punishments to Vilma and others based on evidence that is either flawed or cannot be substantiated.
