DeMarcus Ware’s Comments Prove Gregg Williams’ Bounty Plot Not Typical


Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has likely coached his last NFL game after audio was recently released of him telling his players to intentionally injury San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore before the 2012 NFC Championship game. Since then discussions regarding the matter have ranged very widely, including some arguers who contend that bounties are common in professional football. While the validity of that statement may never be known, Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware said Thursday he has never been given a speech by a coach.

“I’ve never had a coach say something like that,” Ware said. “It’s a whole different deal. You talk about interceptions, fumble recoveries, who gets the first knock down or batted pass, but not go after a head or ACL or bite them or whatever you want to do. Nothing like that.”
