Gregg Williams Says Not Talking With The Rams
Defensive specialist Gregg Williams is back with the Titans, sporting a goatee that would make Walt Frazier and Keith Hernandez proud. Its Williams first actual job since being fired by the Saints.
In between, Williams was employed by but never worked for the Rams. And when Williams met with the media on Thursday, he talked about the fact that he hasnt talked to the Rams.
Well, the thing with that is No. 1 this is my first day back, Williams said, via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I havent talked to anybody. Part of the [suspension] deal is youre not supposed to talk to anybody. Thats not for me to know.
I havent talked with anybody in that organization. Im just happy with the opportunity. . .the fact that I can be here. I havent talked about it. This is my first day back in the NFL.
As Thomas points out, the answer raises an intriguing question. If Williams hasnt talked to the Rams at all, how did Williams know the Rams didnt want to employ him?
Surely, there was communication of some sort between the Rams and Williams at some point during his suspension. Otherwise, Williams would have simply shown up for work.
