Washington senior vice president Doug Williams insisted the team’s decision-makers were unified on the decision the claim linebacker/accused domestic violence committer Reuben Foster off waivers.But at the moment Tress Way Jersey , he and coach Jay Gruden are the only ones being sent out to talk about it, and Williams isn’t doing himself any favors with the talking.After his name was on the initial statement from the team, Williams then appeared on The Team 980 yesterday to expound on the addition of the former first-rounder, who was arrested on domestic violence charges before the 49ers released him.Like coach Jay Gruden, Williams said the team knew there would be backlash. “Rightfully so,” he said.“I’ve got six daughters, so it ain’t something I would condone,” Williams said, via John Keim of ESPN.com. “But at the same time Cheap Da'Ron Payne Jersey , I think we are in the business of at least looking into [Foster’s case]. I could sit here, and I won’t, name a bunch of teams that took on players that got a lot of baggage that nobody’s saying anything about.“You can’t get into nitpicking what they do and what you do. You gotta look at it from your standpoint. There was a lot of thought that went into it. It wasn’t just a spur of the moment type of thing. We all gathered, we talked about it, we knew there was going to be some risk-reward involved in it.”But just in case “other teams are doing it too” wasn’t enough of a defense, Williams broadened his scope in an effort to defend an unpopular position.“We got people who are in high, high, high, high places that have done far worse Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , if you look at it realistically. And they’re still up there,” Williams said. “This is small potatoes [compared to] a lot of things out there. But at the same time, it’s a big issue in America today, whether or not it’s in football, whether or not it’s in everyday life, whether or not it’s in politics, it’s out there.”At this point, what’s abundantly clear is that team president Bruce Allen is perfectly content to let his subordinates do the talking on this issue (since it’s clear owner Dan Snyder won’t), and that Williams isn’t making things better by saying more words about a topic the league clearly hasn’t wrapped its arms around.Ray Rice was made an example of after his domestic violence was caught on tape. Other players have been treated far differently Womens Shawn Lauvao Jersey , such as when the Giants extended kicker Josh Brown while knowing about charges against him, only to see him suspended for one game by the league (the NFL later circled back and made it six). Brown was later released and hasn’t played in the NFL again.Foster has apparently been deemed more valuable than a kicker, and Williams is willing to put his reputation on the line for someone accused of things he deemed “small potatoes.” And those words will likely stick to Williams, no matter how many daughters he has. In response to an interview during which Washington running back Adrian Peterson reportedly admitted to continuing to use corporal punishment on his son, four years after he missed most of a season due to being charged with child abuse, Peterson is taking issue with the manner in which Master聽Tesfatsion of Bleacher Report raised and explored the off-field incident from 2014.“There is nothing more important to Adrian Peterson than being a good father to his children,” agent Ron Slavin said in a statement issued on Peterson’s behalf. “The Bleacher Report approached the Washington Redskins and Adrian about doing a story about his resurgence on the field and his leadership in the locker room. Adrian’s trust with this reporter was violated when he discussed what happened four years ago. Adrian learned several valuable lessons four years ago, thanks in part to his suspension and counseling he underwent during and afterward. The writer attempted to focus on four years ago rather than who Adrian is now as a father. Since signing with the Redskins he has been an outstanding teammate and leader both on and off the field. Neither Adrian or myself will make any further comment on this article. His focus remains on leading the Redskins to the playoffs.”The statement doesn’t contain an express denial, although the content and context of the statement could be regarded as an effort by Peterson to dispute the notion that he is disciplining his son in a manner that would violate the expectations of the NFL or relevant legal authorities. The bigger problem seems to be that Womens Dustin Hopkins Jersey , from Peterson’s perspective, the reporter violated the terms of the interview.The statement doesn’t claim that Tesfatsion used information that was provided on an off-the-record basis. To do so, of course, would be tantamount to admitting that Peterson said what Tesfatsion claims he said. Wholesale NFL Jerseys
