The NFL gave Jonathan Vilma and his attorney a sworn statement from former Saints Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams Monday.

It says Vilma put a $10,000 bounty on Brett Favre.

Monday Vilma met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about his suspension that has been temporarily lifted.

In a tweet Vilma responded to the statement from Williams.

The tweet said Williams was bullied into signing the sworn statement Friday. 

Vilma has denied offering a bounty for the former Vikings quarterback in court.
