Williams, who was a Pro Bowl backup last season in Whitecotton’s first year on the staff, opened up after the game about the incident.
“It really wasn’t an argument like it seemed,” Williams told reporters after the game via NJ.com. “Just a loud conversation.”
He said that the two of them crushed whatever kind of meat they had at the time.

“In the game, man, you just get hot. I love my coach, man. My coach loves[s] me. … We talked right after that, got on the right page and listened to each other. There is no love lost. He’s one of the best defensive line coaches I’ve ever had,” Williams explained.
He added that he was trying to convince coaches to use more four-man runs against the Bengals’ offensive line instead of calling charging packages. Joe Burrow was only sacked twice in the game and didn’t throw a single interception. He had three touchdown passes.
Williams had four tackles in the game, including a sack.
Whitecotton has 10 years of NFL coaching experience. He joined the Jets last season when Robert Saleh took over as head coach. Williams was a Pro Bowl alternate under him in 2021. Whitecotton has three previous stops in the NFL: San Francisco 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills.
