    Rams withhold comment as NFL decides discipline for Williams

    NFL.com

    The Rams are bystanders as the NFL determines a punishment following its investigation into the "pay for performance" system of the New Orleans Saints and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who now holds the same post in St. Louis.
    The league is expected to level punishment this month and its discipline for Williams, who allegedly instituted a "bounty" program during his three-year tenure with the Saints. Williams was hired by the Rams and close friend Jeff Fisher in January.

    Rams general manager Les Snead echoed the message previously delivered by executive vice president Kevin Demoff, telling "The Rich Eisen Podcast" Tuesday the team can't comment on the situation.
    "Right now, it's a league matter," Snead said. "That's an ongoing investigation, and we're not going to comment on it until that investigation is resolved."
    Snead also chose not to comment on whether the Rams have discussed contingency plans should Williams be suspended. Snead did suggest that the Rams would be prepared for whatever action the league takes.
    "In life, whether you're in the NFL, whether you're a football team ... you have to be prepared for adversity and you better bet able to adjust," Snead said. "The (people) who do that the best are most successful."
    Williams met with league security Monday in New York to discuss the "bounty" investigation, a meeting NFL.com's Steve Wyche reported was not held at NFL headquarters and did not include Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    Sounds like someone at NFL.com had to put an article out there, so they just found something to write about. This is really non-news, of course the Rams can't comment. The stuff being investigated didn't happen with the Rams, and the Rams can't make any moves until they know the league decision. What is there to comment on?

    Well, reading between the lines I would say there has been a contingency plan discussed. DUH!
