NFL skeptical about Trent Williams’ story in official case

Although Roy Ellison was suspended by the league for verbally abusing Trent Williams, there is mounting evidence that Williams instigated the situation. There is not enough proof however to punish Williams.

“He was throwing the N-word all over the place against the Philadelphia players,” said one source familiar with the case. “It was nasty, vulgar stuff, and Ray Ellison was sick of it. The way that term is used pisses a lot of people off within the game. There are plenty of people who have worked games, and who have worked Trent Williams’ games, that support how he handled it.”

With the racial ramifications brought to light in the Richie Incognito Jonathan Martin case the league will take situations like this very seriously but, the lack of proof could lead to no consequences.
