The ink has barely dried on Gregg Williams' contract to run the defense for Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams next season, but as Dan Moore noted earlier today, St. Louis' timing couldn't have been worse. Williams was implicated in a cash-for-injuries bounty scandal last week for his time as the defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, and today Williams will meet with NFL investigators in New York to discuss the program.
As more details have emerged and more players have stepped forward acknowledging the program, the NFL's investigation is expected to soon turn its attention to Williams' places of employment that predate his time in New Orleans. That means the Titans, Redskins, Jaguars and Bills can each expect the league office to come calling soon.
As for the Rams? As Moore notes, they could save face by firing Williams before the NFL hands down a ruling. At the moment, Fisher and St. Louis are stuck in limbo, waiting on action from the NFL.
