Saints Player Suspensions Overturned On Appeal

The suspensions for those players involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty case have been overturned, according to a report from Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated.

Four players were suspended by the NFL for their alleged role in the bounty case: Jonathan Vilma (full season), Anthony Hargrove (8 games), Will Smith (4 games) and Scott Fujita (3 games).

This means all players will be eligible to play in Week 1. NFL Commissioner can re-consider discipline in the case moving forward so it's not necessarily a total victory for the Saints but for the time being it is.
