Jonathan Vilma, the Saints LB originally suspended for the year, met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for three hours Monday in New York. Vilma again swore his innocence.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Goodell gave Vilma a copy of a sworn affidavit from former New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, claiming Vilma offered $10,000 to any teammate who knocked Brett Favre out of the January 2010 NFC title game.

The other three previously suspended Bounty-gate players meet with Goodell Tuesday.

Goodell is expected to re-rule on the suspensions soon, after a three-person appeals panel sent the matter back to Goodell for clarification.
