Williams meets with NFL Security

Gregg Williams, one of the men at the center of the bounty controversy involving the New Orleans Saints, met with officials from NFL Security on Monday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

I'm told these officials had a great many more questions for Williams about his role not just in the Saints' scandal but also if he was involved in other instances of organizing bounties. Newspaper reports have linked Williams to bounty programs at his previous coaching stops in Washington and Buffalo. No other details of the meeting were available.

The NFL's investigation, I'm told, is focusing on the players involved in the Saints bounty scandal but perhaps even more on Williams, coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis.

One message the NFL wants to make clear is that coaches and managers are responsible for the actions of their players and others. Commissioner Roger Goodell also wants to make a statement that player safety is paramount.

It's expected the NFL will release its disciplinary decisions within the next few weeks.
