Saints' Vilma testifies in bounty program

The SportsXchange

Suspended New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma, two former teammates and Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt testified Thursday that Vilma never pledged money for tackles that hurt opponents.

Vilma wants to be allowed to return to the Saints while his lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell moves forward. Vilma has been suspended for the season for what the league claims was his being a leader in a team's bounty program.

Retired Saints linebacker Troy Evans and defensive back Randall Gay testified on Vilma's behalf.
