The were rumors this morning that Jonathan Vilma was being traded to the Eagles. Since I've been asked about this several times today, I figured it was worth addressing. According to Ian Rappaport of NFL.com, Vilma is in Philadelphia today, but it does not appear that he is being acquired by the Eagles. It looks like a medical trip only:
Intrigue around Jonathan Vilma today: He's in Philly getting a second medical opinion… on something. Unclear what he's having looked at— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 14, 2013
There is a noted sports hernia specialist in Philadelphia. But from what I'm hearing, I'd be surprised if that's what Vilma is in Philly for— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 14, 2013
If you're a Saints fan, what you hope is that it's not the same knee issue Vilma has been fighting. As of now, still unclear tho— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 14, 2013
Carry on with your day.
