In an interview with HBO's "Real Sports" set to air on Tuesday night, Gleason explained his reaction as he witnessed the defensive coordinator's infamous speech in January. Gleason was a guest of the team. Pamphilon was trailing him as part of a project unrelated to the Saints' "bounty" scandal.
"When he specified the other players' injuries, that to me, was over the line," Gleason said of Williams, via USA Today.
"The real problem was no one seemed shocked," Gleason said. "There was no discussion of, 'Wow, did we just hear that?' "
Gleason, 35, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) -- Lou Gehrig's Disease -- two years ago. Recent studies at Boston University suggest head trauma suffered during Gleason's career played a role.
