— Minnesota Vikings Kevin Williams and Charlie Johnson say they never saw the kind of impropriety detailed in a Sports Illustrated report about alleged corruption at Oklahoma State.

The report charges that Oklahoma State players were paid while playing at school. It also quotes one player saying that Williams was among those players that had course work done for them to keep them eligible.

Williams brushed off the report. He says he wished he had been paid. He says he wishes “they could pay all the college players. But I don't know where they're getting their information from. I didn't.”

Johnson says he never saw money being handled or passed from boosters to players. He says “I never participated in anything like that.”
