Roger Goodell Has Reinstated Gregg Williams, Titans Officially Hire Him As A Senior Assistant For Defense
Gregg Williams to the Tennessee Titans has been in the works for a while now, pending league reinstatement of Enemy No. 1. Williams, who was suspended indefinitely for his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, sat out all of last season while technically an employee of the St. Louis Rams. As of today he’s been reinstated, and he’s back coaching in the NFL.
We found out yesterday that Roger Goodell was only slightly amending the punishment to Jonathan Vilma, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove, and keeping Will Smith’s four-game ban the same. The NFLPA, pissed that Goodell ruled in favor of Goodell and against the three-person panel which threw out the suspensions, wrote a scathing letter promising retribution.
