Report: Redskins, Gregg Williams, Robert Royal Being Sued Over Bounty Program by Former NFL Player Barrett Green

Gregg WilliamsGregg Williams was suspended and subsequently released by the Rams last season for his participation in the Saints bounty program. He may have to pay up for his work in a similar system for the Redskins.

The Redskins organization, Williams and former Washington tight end Robert Royal are being sued by former NFL linebacker Barrett Green, according to Gabe Feldman, the┬ádirector of Tulane’s sports law program. Green’s complaint is that “Redskins coaches directed their players to disregard criminal and civil laws, as well as NFL rules, to intentionally injure opponents,” according to Feldman.
