After weeks of having his name on the fringes of the Saints bounty investigation, linebacker Jonathan Vilma has yanked former Saints assistant Mike Cerullo into the middle of the radar screen.
Cerullo, according to Vilma, blew the whistle on the situation. Cerullo, according to Vilma, is lying. Cerullo, according to Vilma, simply wants revenge against the Saints for firing him after the 2009 season.
Cerullo, according to Vilma, specifically wants revenge against interim head coach Joe Vitt. And Cerullo, according to Vilma, created the notes that reflected the alleged contributions to the Brett Favre bounty. And those notes show a $5,000 contribution from Joe Vitt. And the NFL never accused or suspected Vitt of making any contribution to any bounty pool.
So what does it all mean to the bounty case? I tried to make sense of it during Monday’s PFT Live.
