The NFL suspended Williams indefinitely after the bounty scandal broke, but since then the players had their suspensions lifted after an appeal and Saints' head coach Sean Payton returned to action two weeks earlier than expected. Now, the one man that many thought would never return to the NFL is back.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that Williams has to conform to all league rules and the NFL will periodically check up and monitor him for his compliance.
The Titans ranked 27th in the NFL in total defense in 2012, giving up 374.9 yards per game and a league high 471 points surrendered. In 2011, Williams' defense in New Orleans only ranked 24th in the NFL, however while they gave up a lot of yards, they limited opponents to 339 points, 13th best in the NFL.
Williams had already left the New Orleans Saints before his suspension, hired to run the St. Louis Rams defense. However, after his suspension his contract with the Rams was voided. St. Louis hired Rob Ryan to serve as their defensive coordinator this week.
