Rams will take wait-and-see approach with Gregg Williams
Rams G.M. Les Snead joined PFT Live on Monday for a spot that was scheduled before the news broke regarding the bounty system administered by Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams when he was with the Saints.
Snead said the team won’t comment on the situation until the the NFL issues a final ruling. “It’s a process the league is handling, and we’ll let them handle it,” Snead said.
Snead also opted not to comment on possible plans for replacing Williams, in 2012 or beyond. “We will always be prepared for any contingency that arises,” Snead said.
The Rams would be wise to prepare for the contingency of Williams to not be an employee of the team. After reading Peter King’s excellent new Sports Illustrated article on the Saints’ bounty system, I’m even more convinced Williams could be hanging out with Pete Rose before too long.
And Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who spent the 2011 season helping out the league office for free, may be wondering why no one gave him an inkling when filling out his staff that Williams may ultimately be unavailable to work in 2012, or beyond.
