New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees Backing Jonathan Vilma’s Lawsuit

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees filed an affidavit today (Saturday) in Louisiana District Court supporting teammate Jonathan Vilma’s suit against Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner.

It’s the third affidavit that has been filed for Vilma, joining those filed by Saints interim coach Joe Vitt and head athletic trainer Scottie Patton. Brees’ filing, like Vitt’s, explained the damage that would be done by Vilma’s absence, if he is indeed to serve his season-long suspension while the case is in the courts.

“Having been in the NFL for 11 years, I have come to the understanding that great teammates make teams great,” Brees wrote. “I believe that my teammates with the New Orleans Saints, through leadership by individuals including Jonathan, have a good understanding of our responsibilities to our organization, team, teammates, the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana.
