The Patriots and Eagles won't hold joint practices until the second full week in August, but Eagles corner Cary Williams has already started chirping.
In a meeting with Philadelphia reporters on Friday, Williams discussed why he still feels such a passionate dislike for New England.
From 2009-12, Williams played for the Ravens and grew to hate the Patriots there. He did nothing to ameliorate the relationship last year when the Patriots and Eagles held a series of joint practices in training camp and he was tossed from one particular session after getting into a fight with then-rookie receiver Aaron Dobson.
“I’m trying not to go into details about it or disrespect that organization because I give that organization nothing but . . . you still got to go out there and play the game,” Williams said Friday. “All the credit. I give them all the credit in the world. But one fact still remains, they haven’t won a Super Bowl since they got caught.
“You got caught. I know you’re gonna be looking at the film when we go out there. That’s just that. I don’t want to show them my card. That’s just me, not them. Not them. Every team is gonna look at it anyway. We’re gonna look at what they do too.”
The Patriots will travel to Richmond, Virginia for a week of joint practices with the Redskins this week. The Eagles will make their way to Foxboro the following week.
