#Vikings have terminated the contract of NT Remi Ayodele.— Minnesota Vikings (@VikingsFootball) March 21, 2012
The NFL announced the punishment of the coaches and management involved in the scandal, but Commissioner Roger Goodell is holding off on disciplining the players as of now. Ayodele played for the Saints from 2008-2010. He was involved in what should have been an illegal hit that injured Brett Favre in the 2009 NFC Championship Game.
In 2011, the Vikings paid Ayodele a signing bonus of $3.56 million and a base salary of $685 thousand, according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN's NFC North Blog. Ayodele made just 15 tackles for Minnesota last season.
