Saints not releasing Jonathan Vilma

GM Mickey Loomis says the Saints have no plans to release MLB Jonathan Vilma following the signing of MLB Curtis Lofton.
"(Vilma) is still a big part of our team," Loomis said Saturday evening. "A top player and leader for us." The Saints could be waiting to decide Vilma's fate until learning his punishment for his role in the team's bounty scandal. It's possible either Lofton or Vilma could be shifted outside, but it's doubtful the Saints signed Lofton with a position switch in mind. Vilma is still very much in danger of being handed his walking papers.
