NEW ORLEANS — Former Saints special teams standout Steve Gleason says he never authorized a documentary film maker to release an inflammatory recording of disgraced former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
Gleason, who has ALS, says he feels "deflated and disappointed" over the release of the audio, which film maker Sean Pamphilon got through access he gained through his work on a project to document the ex-player's struggle with his disease.
Gleason played for the Saints from 2000 to 2007 and maintains a strong relationship with the club, which has backed his efforts to improve the lives of those living with the debilitating symptoms of ALS.
Gleason says there was an agreement that he and his family would own the rights to any recordings made of his interaction with the Saints.
