The NFL's bounty scandal may not be going away any time soon. Speaking on Monday afternoon at the NFL owners meetings, commissioner Roger Goodell said that the bounty investigation will continue. He also left open the possibility for penalties to other teams for bounties, including the Washington Redskins.
Williams was the defensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins from 2004 through 2007. Allegations that he ran a bounty program there have surfaced since news of the scandal in New Orleans broke earlier this year.
Goodell said that the league will meet with others to pursue additional information about illegal bounties.
Earlier in the day, Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports reported via Twitter that NFL officials interviewed someone from the Williams' Washington days about bounties there. Here is Kirwan's tweet:

Williams was suspended indefinitely for his role in the bounty program in New Orleans. Head coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire season, and GM Mickey Loomis is out for eight games.
