Gregg Williams says he had no communication with the Rams

AP

Defensive specialist Gregg Williams is back with the Titans, sporting a goatee that would make Walt Frazier and Keith Hernandez proud.  It’s Williams’ first actual job since being fired by the Saints.

In between, Williams was employed by — but never worked for — the Rams.  And when Williams met with the media on Thursday, he talked about the fact that he hasn’t talked to the Rams.

“Well, the thing with that is — No. 1 — this is my first day back,” Williams said, via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  “I haven’t talked to anybody.  Part of the [suspension] deal is you’re not supposed to talk to anybody.  That’s not for me to know.

“I haven’t talked with anybody in that organization.  I’m just happy with the opportunity. . . the fact that I can be here.  I haven’t talked about it.  This is my first day back in the NFL.”

As Thomas points out, the answer raises an intriguing question.  If Williams hasn’t talked to the Rams at all, how did Williams know the Rams didn’t want to employ him?

Surely, there was communication of some sort between the Rams and Williams at some point during his suspension.  Otherwise, Williams would have simply shown up for work.

  1. I would guess that the Rams could have simply told Williams’ agent, or relayed the mesage through the Commissioners office. Doesnt mean he personally had to talk ot anyone from the Rams, just saying…

  2. As Thomas points out, the answer raises an intriguing question. If Williams hasn’t talked to the Rams at all, how did Williams know the Rams didn’t want to employ him?

    Because when he was hired, Blake Williams (his son) got the LB Coach job…. And seeing as how he follows his father a lot of places, the writing was on the wall when they let Blake go.

    Not hard to connect the dots

  3. Is it really that hard for the Rams to call up Williams’ agent and say “Your client is not welcome at our facilities.”

  4. I guess turning on the TV and seeing news that they are talking to people other than him about “his job” that he hasn’t been fired from might have been clue A.
    Maybe Williams agent was informed that his clients services would no longer required in St Louis if and when Williams got reinstated.
    You don’t have to say something directly to somebody to deliver them a message

  5. All he had to do was read any sports page and he would know that the Rams decided to go in another direction, it was even reported in this sad excuse of a electronic sports blog.

  6. “Surely, there was communication of some sort between the Rams and Williams at some point during his suspension.”

    The same way players currently under contract can communicate with other teams- their agent.

  7. Was he in the witness protection program or what? Maybe he thought if he dyed his hair and grew a goateee, the commissioner wouldn’t recognize him and he could get a job. He must have never believed the commisison would ever reinstate him. He’s Norvell turner, a millions divits in his neck, ago.

  8. How in the world… he looks 40 pounds lighter and doesn’t even look like the same guy. Can we get a DNA test?

    “NFL wants DNA test to confirm Gregg Williams identity.”

  9. Ummm anyone remember this guy was allowed by the league to seek employment pre reinstatement, so I think the Rams easily could have called Williams (Himself) and said we will not be working with you….

    Just sayin, this post is kind of a waste of space

  10. “Surely, there was communication of some sort between the Rams and Williams at some point during his suspension. Otherwise, Williams would have simply shown up for work.”

    Or he was told by the team, prior to the actual suspension, that he was going to be fired.

  11. A pink slip is indeed “communication”, and that’s all the team had to do without truly communicating with him as in a conversation or back and forth discussion.

  12. Everyone should just believe everything this man says. Hey Gregg, THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE. Just ask him. He would never fabricate anything. Truly an honest soul in a world of liars. Very enlightening.

  13. [i]redbearwoodall says:

    Walt Frazier? More like Walter White, am I right?[/i]

    For sure. Gregg Heisenberg! He actually looks like Dr. Gordon Freeman from Half-Life.

  14. WTH? When did it become ok for everybody’s default poa to lie thru their teeth until such time as they are found out…then apologize? There is no way on Gods green earth this man went a full season without speaking to his son…a Ram employee at the time.
    Seriously…

  15. the goatee and glasses is a fantastic PR move. his PR guy is earning his money. he’s unrecognizable, which he should be, considering he got his shot back in the NFL the minute he could, and considering that sites like, well, this one, were saying things like he’d never work in the NFL again.

  16. Gregg is in the process of putting together musical selection tapes for the team practices. He is torn between early Vivaldi, Gustav Mahler’s mid life compositions and the robust works of Wagner, such as Flight of the Valkryes.

  17. I half expect the guy in this picture to drive around neighborhoods in the mystery machine passing out “free candy to little children”… Could this guy look any more like Chester the Molester?

  18. At lest he doesn’t look so much like Martina anymore. Thought, I did hear Samantha from Bewitched wanted her glasses back.
