AP Sources: Williams to Meet with Investigators
NEW YORK (AP) -- Two people familiar with the NFL's investigation of bounties paid to New Orleans players say former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will meet with league security officials Monday.

The people, who spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because details of the continuing investigation are not being disclosed, could not specify where in the New York area the meeting will take place.

The NFL revealed its findings Friday that showed Saints players being paid for knocking opponents out of games. Williams, now the defensive coordinator in St. Louis, oversaw the program, and Saints coach Sean Payton knew about it.

Earlier Sunday, league spokesman Greg Aiello said in an email to The Associated Press that the NFL will continue ''addressing the issues raised as part of our responsibility to protect player safety and the integrity of the game.''

Those issues could include incidents from previous seasons, too.
