Vilma expects fair meeting with Commissioner

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS -

Peter Ginsberg, Jonathan Vilma's representative, told ESPN today that the Saints star will inform the league that he's willing to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell regarding the bounty allegations.

"If the commissioner feels sitting down with Jonathan and discussing matters will lead to a quick and fair resolution, Jonathan has been and continues to be willing to cooperate in any way that helps the truth come out," Ginsberg told ESPN. "We only hope the commissioner keeps an open mind and doesn't feel restricted by his previous and clearly erroneous conclusions."

In a text message to ESPN's Ed Werder, Vilma wrote, "I'm expecting a fair meeting, unlike the June 18 appeals hearing. We can all benefit from transparency regarding evidence and witnesses instead of using conjecture or hearsay to come to inaccurate conclusions. I look forward to getting this accomplished."
