St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has apologizing to the NFL, to Rams coach Jeff Fisher, the organization and NFL football fans in general for managing a bounty pool while he held the same position with the New Orleans Saints.
Williams was suspended indefinitely on Wednesday by the NFL, and the Rams say he’ll be eligible for reinstatement after this season.
This snippet from an AP article summarizes Williams’ statement:
Williams does not argue with the terms of the suspension and says, “I accept full responsibility for my actions.” Williams says he will cooperate with the league and its ongoing investigation, and said he’ll serve as an advocate for player safety and sportsmanship. Williams added that he’ll do anything he can to earn back the respect he has lost. He also says he wants to return to coaching.
