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.
