Titans embracing Williams at start

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After the first meeting at which new Tennessee Titans senior assistant/defense Gregg Williams spoke to the entire unit, two veteran leaders gave basically the same answer about Williams’ history.

Cornerback Jason McCourty and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley said they have no concerns about Williams’ trustworthiness as a coach now that he’s part of their organization.

“For us as players, this is football,” McCourty said. “No one’s concerned about what went on in New Orleans or what went on with everything that he had to do. Whatever went on, there was a punishment behind it, he was out of football for a year. He did that and now he’s back. So I think for us it’s about how he can help us get better as a team.”
