The Rumor Mill is heating up this week. Which quarterbacks do the Jaguars seem to be interested in?…
Not All Good News
Williams initially pleaded guilty and received a standard six-month probation sentence and apologized to the team, police and community. But later that month, Williams, who had just signed a free agent contract with the team that included a $10 million signing bonus, returned to court saying he wanted to withdraw his plea because he didn't understand its ramifications and didn't think he could pay a $2,500 bail and wanted to get out of jail.
Once his plea was withdrawn, the case began anew and with it, the notes recorded by the arresting officer became a public record. The notes allege Williams made several racist and lewd comments.
"We don't condone racial slurs, we don't condone behavior and offensive comments that are alleged, reported to Brian Williams," Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said. "It's just not something we condone or tolerate in this organization. It's an alleged thing, it's a he-said, he-said and I don't want to get into any more of it.
"What was reported is just totally unacceptable. We were blind-sided by this. But I want to remind everyone that it is alleged that he made those kind of remarks."
Added Del Rio: "I spoke with Brian. Brian has assured me that he has a different version. I think it's important to let the process play out here. You have two individuals that have a different interpretation of what occurred. He has the legal right to pursue and do the things that he's doing. He basically stated that he did not make comments like that and was offended by the fact that it was said that he had."
Williams will appear at a pretrial hearing next Monday.
Williams played four seasons with Minnesota where he started 48 games for the Vikings. He was signed as an unrestricted free agent on March 11 and has started all 29 games he's played in for the Jaguars the past two years.
