Gregg Williams coached the Buffalo Bills from 2001 to 2003 and some thought the team would face sanctions from the “bounty gate” scandal (Credit: REUTERS/Mike Moose/Files) With the allegations coming to light against the New Orleans Saints and the eventual suspensions, some thought the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins might face sanctions because of Gregg Williams coaching with each team. Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the league has looked into those allegations and found “no evidence of the type of program that existed at the Saints.” Per the report, investigators weren’t able to find “independent, multiple corrorboration” of statements made in the media. Maske’s source said that the case could be reopened if any new evidence comes to light. At present, though, both teams are in the clear. According to Josh Alper at ProFootballTalk.com, “Maske had one of the reports that quoted multiple former Redskins about the existence of a bounty program and helped touch off the investigation. Former Redskins safety Matt Bowen also claimed there was a bounty program in place while Williams ran the defense in Washington. Williams was the Redskins defensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007. Former Bills safety Coy Wire leveled similar allegations against Williams, who was the head coach of the Bills from 2001 to 2003.”     Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Columnist - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Report: Redskins, Bills in clear on bounty allegations appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
