An NFL investigation has found that former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams implemented a bounty system where players were compensated for injuring opposing players while he was with the team. Reports emerged that Williams did the same thing with the Washington Redskins.
When new reports emerged on Saturday that there was no such program with the Tennessee Titans or the Jacksonville Jaguars during Williams' tender, it calmed concerns that he did this everywhere. Was the phenomenon confined to two teams?
"There was financial compensation ... That's real, that happened in Buffalo. There were rewards. There never was a point where cash was handed out in front of the team. But surely, you were going to be rewarded. When somebody made a big hit that hurt an opponent, it was commended and encouraged."
This story is probably going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
