Report: Bills, Redskins in the clear on bounty investigations

The NFL found no evidence of bounties when conducting investigations of the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins, The Washington Post reports.

Those two teams were suspended defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' previous stops before he was put in charge of the New Orleans Saints defense.

"The league has investigated the matter but has not found evidence to corroborate the accusations, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the NFL has made no formal announcement about the status of the probe.  The league “followed up” but found “no evidence of the type of program that existed at the Saints,” the person said. “Unlike the Saints case, there was no independent, multiple corroboration of statements made in the media."
Williams was the defensive coordinator in Washington from 2004-2007 and the head coach in Buffalo from 2001-2003.
