Kurt Warner says Gregg Williams deserves a second chance.

Calls for former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to receive a lifetime ban from the NFL reached a fever pitch this week after audio surfaced of his now infamous "kill the head" speech prior to a January playoff game against the 49ers. One former NFL player, a target of the Saints' bounty program no less, says that Williams deserves a second chance.

Kurt Warner tweeted this message on Saturday:

When a follower noted that Williams had a second chance when the league warned the Saints, Warner stuck to his belief:

Warner's stance on the matter is not a complete surprise. Like many players, Warner is open about his faith. Unlike many players who where that faith on their sleeve, Warner's actions have always been consistent with his beliefs.

Whether the NFL feels the same way is another matter entirely.
