Vilma Set to Move from the Big Apple to the Big Easy?

The Washington Post is reporting that the Saints are about to grab themselves someoneVilma that could be a huge lift on their defense at the linebacker spot.  Reporter Jason La Canfora reported just a short while ago the following:  “Jon Vilma, is very very close to beaing dealt to the Saints (Sources said the Skins nosed around on him but nothing serious).”  If the rumor is true, it would be a great deal for the Saints, who need linebacker help and lost out on the derby to get Zach Thomas.  Vilma was a first-round pick of the Jets back in 2004, and simply does not fit their system.  Last season after suffering a knee injury he was placed on IR after 7 games.  He had 43 tackles.  In four seasons Vilma has 439 tackles and 2.5 sacks.  He should fit nicely into the Saints system.
