In the wake of the revelation of the investigation into the Saints bounty program, there were allegations that the Redskins and Bills both had similar programs when Gregg Williams was coaching there.
Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the league has looked into those allegations and found “no evidence of the type of program that existed at the Saints.” Per the report, investigators weren’t able to find “independent, multiple corrorboration” of statements made in the media.
Maske’s source said that the case could be reopened if any new evidence comes to light. At present, though, both teams are in the clear.
Maske had one of the reports that quoted multiple former Redskins about the existence of a bounty program and helped touch off the investigation. Former Redskins safety Matt Bowen also claimed there was a bounty program in place while Williams ran the defense in Washington. Williams was the Redskins defensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007. Former Bills safety Coy Wire leveled similar allegations against Williams, who was the head coach of the Bills from 2001 to 2003.
