New Orleans Saints cornerback Jabari Greer, who played under Gregg Williams for three seasons (2009-11) strongly endorsed his former defensive coordinator during an appearance on NFL Network this week at the Super Bowl media center.
Greer, a nine-year veteran who began his career in Buffalo, said Williams was motivational and transformed the Saints’ defense into one of the NFL’s best during his time in New Orleans.
“Everybody wants to play for a guy like that, someone that will motivate you to be the kind of player that you’re called to be,” Greer said.
Greer said when the bounty situation went down “a lot of people were thrown under the bus.”
“But ultimately I’m not one to judge or to say that a person should be condemned because of what happened,” Greer said. “This is his livelihood, this is what he was born to do. And who are we to say that you can’t do what you want to do for the rest of your life and take that from you? I’m not going to say that, and I don’t think anyone on this panel should say that either.”
