Redskins Won't Be Punished In Bounty Investigation, According To Report

Forgotten in the wake of the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal was the fact that Gregg Williams worked for other NFL teams, such as the Washington Redskins, and was accused of utilizing a bounty program. The Redskins find themselves "in the clear" as far as punishment goes from the NFL for bounties, according to a report by Mark Maske of the Washington Post.

The NFL has no plans to penalize the Washington Redskins over allegations that the team's defensive players had an improper bounty program when Gregg Williams oversaw the defense between the 2004 and 2007 seasons, according to a person with knowledge of the league's investigation.

The league found no evidence that corroborated the allegation in regards to bounties, according to Maske. Despite not finding evidence enough to punish the Redskins, the league has left open the possibility to punish the team should more evidence come to light at a later date.
