Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, is in really hot water. I mean really, really hot water. Amidst the Saints bounty scandal, in which players were paid $1000 for knockouts, and $1500 for cart-offs. Now, audio has been released, containing a vicious rant by Williams encouraging players to take out MCL’s, dish out concussions, and other harmful actions to opponents. The audiotape was released by Steve Gleason, who was a Saints’ safety, and was assisting a filmmaker, in making a documentary concerning football from pee-wee to the NFL. 27 defensive players were found to be involved in the illegal bounty fund. Now, Williams has been suspended “indefinitely” by the NFL.
