Eagles cornerback Cary Williams got himself thrown out of a joint practice with the Patriots last year for fighting.
He didn’t wait until the teams got together later this month to throw his next haymaker.
“They are cheaters,” Williams said of the Patriots, via Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com. “They are.”
That was an obvious reference to the Spygate scandal, which saw the Patriots fined $250,000 they lost a 2008 first-round pick for illegally videotaping opponents’ signals. Coach Bill Belichick was also fined an additional $500,000.
But it wasn’t a drive-by for Williams, who kept piling on the team he grew to hate when he was with the Ravens. He said he didn’t like practicing against anyone, but especially New England.
“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. “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.”
Williams has just guaranteed those practices will be watched a little more closely by everyone.
