NFL Roundup: Filmmaker denies charge, Tollefson signs with Raiders

The SportsXchange

Filmmaker Sean Pamphilon denied a charge made by former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason that he released a recording of former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams illegally.

"We do have a production agreement that I followed," Pamphilon told Yahoo! Sports. "I can't understand why Steve would think it's in his best interest to prevent me from telling the truth about Gregg Williams."

Gleason stated on his website on Friday that he felt "deflated and disappointed" that Pamphilon released Williams' recording.

Pamphilon released audio this week of the suspended Williams instructing his defensive players to target San Francisco 49ers players before their playoff game last season.

Gleason, who has the fatal Lou Gehrig's disease, was working with Pamphilon on the film documenting his battle.

--Defensive end Dave Tollefson, a two-time Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants, signed with the Raiders, according to InsideBayArea.com.

Tollefson played five seasons with the New York Giants, getting five sacks last season as a backup.

The Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans also expressed interest.

--The Washington Redskins are pursuing free agent safety Madieu Williams.

Williams visited the Redskins on Friday and the team offered the veteran a contract, according to the Washington Post.

The former second-round draft choice of the Cincinnati Bengals played for the San Francisco 49ers last season. He has also played for the Minnesota Vikings.
