Gregg Williams: Rams' New Defensive Coordinator Banned for the Season
|Gregg Williams: Out of the NFL for at least a year.|
Williams and Payton have been under Goodell's microscope for their role in creating and maintaining a bounty program that paid players cash incentives for knocking opposing players out of games, including and especially during the Saints' Super Bowl-winning season.
The Saints as a team are being fined $500,000 and losing draft picks (second round in 2012 and 2013 are both forfeit).
No word yet on what the Rams will do for a defensive coordinator this year, now that Williams has been meat-hooked.
