Mum's the word for Gregg Williams on Rams : Stltoday
During his introductory press conference as the new senior assistant/defense for the Tennessee Titans, Gregg Williams was asked what went wrong in St. Louis. Williams sidestepped the question like a pass-rusher eluding a blitz pickup.
“Well, the thing with that is — No. 1 — this is my first day back,” Williams told reporters Thursday in Nashville. “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.”
Which is an interesting reply. If he hasn’t talked with the Rams, how then did he learn that the Rams didn’t want him back?
One way around direct communication would've been for the Rams to inform NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that they weren't bringing back Williams, and then for the commissioner to inform Williams.
Williams had time left on his Rams contract, but there is language in all contracts dealing with suspensions, and in this case a team's right to void the contract because of a suspension.

He lied when he got hired by the Rams and he's lying now. It's what he does best. No surprise here.
