Williams Working On Reinstatement


Rams defensive coordiator Gregg Williams might be out of the NFL for this season, but he is doing everything in his power to make sure he will be back in 2013. Williams has reportedly been in contact with league officials to discuss steps to get back in the league next year.

Williams is eligible for reinstatement the day after the Super Bowl, and although things aren’t looking great for him right now, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was back next season. He is already reaching out, and it looks like he’s going to take whatever steps are necessary to get back in the good graces of Roger Goodell. This whole situation is no good, but if the Michael Vick saga taught us anything, it’s that forgiveness is there if you are willing to work for it.

If Williams is allowed back, it will be interesting to see how the Rams handle the situation. I know that’s a long way off, but it’s kind of a weird situation. We won’t have to worry about it for another year, but at least for now it looks like he’s on the road to redemption.
