You can't keep a bad man down. 

That's the story of former New Orleans Saints' defensive co-ordinator Gregg Williams, who was today offered the same job at the St Louis Rams. 

Williams was technically the defensive coach of the Rams in 2012, but one month after signing on he was suspended by the NFL for the bounty scandal he ran with the Saints.

He actually never worked a day in St Louis, but that will change when the preparations start for the 2014 season. 

When he was reinstated by the NFL as a coach, he took the Tennessee Titans job for the 2013 season, and guided them to a 15th place finish in the defensive rankings. 

Williams is famous for his aggressive defensive approach, and he is sure to go down well with Rams fans wanting success finally. 

With tough defenses all around them in the NFC West, it seems only fair that the Rams would join the D-party. 

Whether Williams will ever recapture the same influence he had in New Orleans remains to be seen, but he is certainly still held in high regard by his former players. 

"Gregg did a great job of creating a professional approach to football. He made us accountable to each other," Saints cornerback Jabari Greer said.

"He really created something that we still live off of today in our defensive room. We play with a passion and we play with an intensity that is going to be unmatched."
