Gregg Williams Releases Statement About Bounty Program While With Saints

Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has released the following statement regarding his involvement in a bounty program while with the Saints.

“I want to express my sincere regret and apology to the NFL, Mr. Benson, and the New Orleans Saints fans for my participation in the ‘pay for performance’ program while I was with the Saints. It was a terrible mistake, and we knew it was wrong while we were doing it. Instead of getting caught up in it, I should have stopped it. I take full responsibility for my role. I am truly sorry. I have learned a hard lesson and I guarantee that I will never participate in or allow this kind of activity to happen again.”

The National Football League’s investigation into the program revealed that Williams administered the program. Commissioner Roger Goodell will handle the discipline, which could involve fines and/or suspensions of individuals, as well as the forfeiture of draft choices.
