Having spent four seasons in Baltimore prior to signing with the Philadelphia Eagles this past offseason, Cary Williams has no love lost for the Patriots. Which is why it wasn’t surprising he was tossed from practice after picking a fight with Pats rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson.
As for why he went after Dobson, the sixth-year cornerback reverted to what fellow Eagles corner Brandon Boykin said – the Pats were trying to push the Eagles around.
“They came in here talking,” Williams told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “They had a lot of jokes and kikis, and laughs, and a lot of dirty plays that were going on.”
Williams said the Eagles defense isn’t feared enough. Having played a big role in a Super Bowl-winning Ravens defense, the 28-year old said things would’ve been different in Baltimore.
“It definitely would have been a different situation if it was in Baltimore,” Williams added. “It wouldn’t have been a fun practice for the Patriots, I’ll tell you that.”
Williams is in the first year of a 3-year, $17-million deal with Philadelphia. He has fought hamstring injuries for much of training camp, and played sparingly during last week’s joint practices with the Patriots.
