Gregg Williams Caught On Video Offering Bounties

Former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams offered cash to the player who struck San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith in the head during the 2011 NFC playoffs, according to USA Today.

According to the video released by filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who was working on a documentary on a former special teamer with ALS, Williams was recorded as saying, "We hit [expletive] Smith right there" as Williams pointed under his chin.  Williams then rubbed his thumb against his index and middle fingers in reference to the potential fine, saying "I got the first one.  I got the first one.  Go get it. Go lay that [expletive]."

During the clip, Williams also mentioned to injure running back Frank Gore saying, "Kill the head, the body will die. We've do to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore's head.  We want him running sideways.  We want his head sideways."

The video was released on Thursday morning, the same day Sean Payton and other suspended Saints officials were planning to appeal their bans to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
