Although he hasn't been activated yet, Jonathan Vilma has been cleared to play and has been practicing with the team. When he is activated, does Ryan start him or Hawthorne? Hawthorne has been playing well, so you gotta believe he'll continue to start. Plus, Vilma is not in game shape yet, so it would seem to make sense to ease him back into the lineup. Even when he's back in shape, I think the job is Hawthorne's to lose. In fact, I'll go a step further and say the Saints should probably part ways with Vilma when the season's over. I hate that it would come to this because I love everything Vilma has brought to the team, but the fact remains is that we have to free up cap space to re-sign Graham and Vilma has missed significant time from injury the last few years. Thoughts?
