The NFLPA has released a statement regarding the Gregg Williams audio. Here it is courtesy of the union’s website:

“The NFLPA was aware of the existence of the Gregg Williams audio prior to its release. We learned of the tape as part of our effort to obtain any and all information related to an alleged pay-to-injure scheme. We had no control of the content and did not make a determination on the method of its release. To date, the NFL has not provided the NFLPA with detailed evidence of the existence of such a program.”

Funny, I guess Williams’ confession wasn’t good enough.

Oh well, there will be a war with the union and league about discipline, it’s coming.
