Renaldo Wynn backing off claims that Gregg Williams stole playbooks

Former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Renaldo Wynn made waves that Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams stole their playbook ahead of the 1999 AFC Championship game. Here is what Wynn said on Friday.

“You know why we fell short in that AFC Championship game?” Wynn told Mike Meltser and Seth Payne of SportsRadio 610 in Houston.  “After that I ended up getting coached by Gregg Williams. . . .  First thing he said when he came in the door was, ‘Hey, you know why you lost?’  With a lot of other explicit words with that.  He said he had our playbook.  Greg Williams had our playbook.  Our game-plan on offense.  [He] had our playbook.”

So how did he get them?

“I know how he got them,” Wynn said.  “He started getting playbooks when I was with him.”

So the only logical explanation would be that he ‘stole’ them, right? Wrong, at least according to Wynn.

“It’s important that I do clarify,” Wynn told 610 SportsRadio in Houston on Monday.  “Somewhere along the way someone said ‘stolen’ playbook.  Just to clarify I never said stolen.”

Yeah, you didn’t but it was implied. What other alternative is there? He keeps finding them by dumb luck? He has moles on every team they play?

“I never seen the playbook, but at the end of the day, Gregg is a trash talker so, how seriously did I take it? . . .  He didn’t clarify one way or the other.  Was it just him jabbing at me?  Because, obviously, just going back to those heated rivalry days.  You know, I don’t know.  But again, the same words I said to you guys when I was at the Super Bowl, those were his exact words. ‘Hey man, we had your playbook.’  What does that mean?  I’m not sure.  All I know is, heck we did lose three times to them.”
