White Sox GM: 'Best I'm never in a room' with Gregg Williams

Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams, the father of San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and kick returner Kyle Williams, said "it's probably best I'm never in a room with (then-New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg) Williams."

In a statement via the Chicago Tribune, Kenny Williams said he is not happy about culture of the NFL and the Saints "bounty" scandal.

After an audio recording surfaced earlier Thursday, Gregg Williams, who was speaking to his defense before the NFC Divisional playoff game against the 49ers, refers to Kyle Williams: "We need to find out in the first two series of the game, the little wide receiver, No. 10, about his concussion," Williams said. "We need to [expletive] put a lick on him, move him to decide. He needs to decide."

Said Kenny Williams: "As you have seen, Kyle Williams is a man's man and has shown himself more than capable of answering on his own behalf. He has definite feelings on the subject but has chosen to remain committed to providing all his answers to any questions on the field next season. Knowing this young man's intestinal fortitude, I doubt anyone will get him to waver from his position."

Kyle Williams, who has a history of concussions, made two costly fumbles during the NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants and received death threats after the game.

"To answer the questions directed specifically to me, as a father first and foremost, I am glad to report Kyle's concussion tests have been extremely positive and we are grateful he is ready and anxious to get back to competition. Personally, suspension or not, it's probably best I'm never in a room with (Gregg) Williams and wonder if such an order crosses the lines of the aggressive, competitive spirit we all know and love about the sport and leans closer to a criminal act and therefore litigious matter.

"Putting aside my fatherly feelings and my sports executive hat on, I have tremendous respect and admiration for the league in general, the 49er organization and Trent Balke and Jim Harbaugh in particular. I have no doubt they are monitoring the situation very closely and will take the appropriate actions should they deem it necessary in this matter."
