Bills | Ex-player reveals bounty system under Gregg Williams

Mon, 05 Mar 2012 05:49:06 -0800

Former Buffalo Bills S Coy Wire said St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams promoted cash bonuses for delivering hits that seriously injured opponents while he was head coach of the Bills. "There was financial compensation," Wire said. Wire joined the team in 2002 and said an environment of "malicious intent" was in place when he arrived. "There were rewards. There never was a point where cash was handed out in front of the team. But surely, you were going to be rewarded. When somebody made a big hit that hurt an opponent, it was commended and encouraged," Wire said.
