Cash for big hits under Williams with Redskins

Published:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Defensive lineman Kedric Golston says Gregg Williams offered cash incentives for certain plays when Williams was the defensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins.

Golston said Monday that Williams would reward players for a "sack or an interception" or "a pivotal play." But Golston also said: "I've never seen a player get any money for hurting anybody."

Williams was the Redskins defensive coordinator from 2004-07. He met with NFL investigators on Monday about the big-money bounty program he ran while holding the same position with the New Orleans Saints.

Longtime Williams assistant Steve Jackson says he doesn't remember any bounties, either, but he said players would offer their own incentives for big plays -- such as $500 for a tackle inside the 20.
