NFL | NFLPA had Gregg Williams tapes early

The NFL Players Association had detailed knowledge of the video and audio tapes in which former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams implored his team to target San Francisco 49ers players for injury before the tapes became public April 4, according to sources. Cleveland Browns LB Scott Fujita, a former Saints linebacker and a member of the union's executive committee, provided the NFLPA with the details of Williams' speech and the tape that independent film-maker Sean Pamphilon had made accessible to him, according to sources. Fujita is among the players who face disciplinary action from commissioner Roger Goodell for participation in a "pay for performance" pool that also served as a bounty program aimed at targeting opposing players for injury, which the league said was administered by Williams.
