Jets fans burn Jonathan Vilma jersey during tailgate

Prior to Sunday’s New York-New Orleans game, a group of Jets fans sacrificed a Jonathan Vilma jersey in the parking lot of MetLife Stadium. They placed Vilma’s No. 51 jersey on a stake and burned it.

Vilma was drafted by New York in 2004 and then traded to the Saints in 2008. We aren’t quite sure why Jets fans would have ill-will towards Vilma, but it appears that some do.
