Peter King pointed out that the New Orleans Saints are likely preparing for life without Jonathan Vilma by signing a number of linebackers. When Mr. Vilma saw what King was tweeting, he took it as a personal attack and fired back.

King then tried to calm things down a bit by telling everyone to blame the NFL for the investigation, not just some “glorified blogger.”

The NFL and NFLPA are hoping to have a ruling soon on how to punish individual players for the roles they played in bountygate. Vilma is one of the players expected to have the harshest penalty.
