ESPN conducting a character study of Jonathan Vilma and Gregg Williams

According to Mike Florio of, ESPN is working on a character study of both Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

“A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that ESPN plans to televise this weekend a “character study TV feature” on Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

“ESPN has contacted players via letters signed by Barry Abrams, a Feature Producer.  Abrams invites players to call and “chat . . . for 10 minutes or so” on the subject, explaining that the story will run on September 29 or 30,” wrote Florio.

It will be interesting to see what ESPN comes up with in their “character study” and how they decide to spin it.
