Former Saints assistant Williams, ex-LSU star Royal named in filing


LINK

quote:

A former NFL player is suing the Washington Redskins and former assistant coach Gregg Williams, saying a career-ending knee injury is the result of a bounty program in which Redskins coaches encouraged players to intentionally injure opponents.


quote:

The lawsuit also names former Redskins player Robert Royal, the tight end who hit Green. Royal is a former LSU standout.


quote:

The lawsuit says Royal “intentionally lowered his helmet and dove into” Green’s knees “at full speed.” Green had to be helped off the field, and the lawsuit claims the alleged bounty program would have rewarded the hit as “either a ‘knockout’ or a ‘cart off.’”

The suit also claims that Royal played some defense for Williams. Is this true? I don't remember ever hearing that he got snaps on defense.

What's funny is the NFL probably thought they'd be the only ones who would try to accuse a team/franchise of a bounty scandal and just make an example of the saints and POOF it would be gone, but all they did is set precedent and open Pandora's box.

We all have Greg Williams to thank for coaching up Jimmy Graham to be the player that he is

“unusual, outrageous, and an obvious cheap shot.”

His lawyer must be Jackie Chiles.
