Jets coach Adam Gase, commenting on new DC Gregg Williams, said he has no issues with Williams' long-ago involvement in BountyGate. "Gregg was penalized for that heavily." Gase said. "Football was taken away from him. He did his time. That's what makes this country great, right? People get second chances all the time. He's gotten a second chance. He's done it right. He's gone and worked extremely hard to do things right. For me or anyone else to hold that over his head, to me, is wrong. ... People make mistakes. We've moved on from it. That's not something I'm even concerned about.'' (Via Pro Football Talk).

Newly-hired Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is looking to fill out his staff. From what I'm hearing, some names under consideration are: LBs — Blake Williams, his son; DBs — Dennard Wilson (retained from previous Jets staff); DL Clyde Simmons. Assistant DBs — Steve Jackson (previous Jets staff). Simmons and Williams were with Williams last season in Cleveland. Wilson and Jackson coached with Williams in previous stops. Kris Kocurek was eyed for the DL job (he coached under Adam Gase last year in Miami), but he was hired by San Francisco.

Why Gregg Williams? New Jets coach Adam Gase explained his decision to hire the controversial Williams as his defensive coordinator, saying, "He was always a challenge, always loved the way his guys played, the intensity they played with. They defended every blade of grass. I mean, they would always get after it. It was always really tough to move the ball, it was tough to get in the end zone and you knew you were in for a 60-minute battle. His guys always just always played exactly the way you want a defense to play." (Via SiriusXM NFL radio)
