Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is apologizing to the NFL, to St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher, the Rams organization and football fans in general for running a bounty pool while he was in New Orleans.

Williams was suspended indefinitely on Wednesday by the NFL, and the Rams say he'll be eligible for reinstatement after the season.

In a new statement, Williams does not argue with the terms of the suspension and says, ''I accept full responsibility for my actions.''

Williams says he will cooperate with the league and its ongoing investigation, and said he'll serve as an advocate for player safety and sportsmanship.

Williams added that he'll do anything he can to earn back the respect he has lost. He also says he wants to return to coaching.
