Gregg Williams’ NFL career likely is over

The Commissioner may reinstate him after the 2012 season, but former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams most likely is done — at least at the NFL level.

Reaction to his September 14, 2012 sworn statement has been swift and it has been clear. Per multiple sources, the feeling around the league is that players will not want to play for Gregg Williams in light of the perception that he “snitched” on Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma by signing a document claiming that Vilma offered $10,000 to anyone who knocked former Vikings quarterback Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC title game.

Some players have used strong and colorful language, so strong and so colorful that we won’t repeat it unless and until someone chooses to attach their name to it. The bottom line, as we explained last night, is that no NFL players will follow or trust Williams, especially in light of that ridiculously over-the-top “kill the head” rant from the night before a January 2012 game against the 49ers.

I don't have a problem with what he did or said in the locker room. I do have a problem with his throwing Vilma and others under the bus to save his skin in front of Roger. Let him burn.

What organization will ever trust him again?
I doubt even arena football even wants him

Re: Gregg Williams’ NFL career likely is over

If Vick and Stallworth can be rehired why not Greg Williams?

Because they didn't throw teammates under the bus. Though, if you ask me, Stallworth should still be in jail for killing a guy.

There is a video of the man stepping directly out in front of his car. It was determined it wouldn't have mattered if he was sober there was no way he could have avoided the man. That is why he isn't in jail.

Re: Gregg Williams’ NFL career likely is over

Stallworth got lucky that the video showed that the guy was an idiot, Vick should never be allowed to play another down in the league. There's no way that GW gets another chance after he's back besides in St Louis because Fisher is keeping his job for him besides that he would be finished.... I really don't care what he said because the players tuned him out but now he's become Goddell's little ***** and turned on Vilma, that I have a problem with

Re: Gregg Williams’ NFL career likely is over

Williams caused the same problems in Washington, there was no way he was getting the HC job with the Skins. The whole time he was here I was just waiting for the real Gregg Williams to cause some issues. Never in my wildest dreams did I figure he could cause so much damage to this team.
