Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Cary Williams knows he can be a problem. So does just about everybody else in the Eagles organization, including quarterback Michael Vick who recently told Williams to chill out.
Williams of course was involved in a scuffle with Riley Cooper earlier this week which Vick tried to breakup. It didn’t end well as Vick went to the media and blasted Williams, suggesting he wasn’t respected by the younger players on the team.
Vick is at it again now, though this time calls out Williams by name, suggesting he tone down his issues as the Eagles need him on the field.
Per CSN Philly:
Cary Williams has to calm down, Michael Vick said. Has to learn to control himself.
Because he’s no good to the Eagles if he’s getting kicked out of practices and games. He’s no good to the Eagles if he’s watching from the sideline or the locker room.
Williams, who shoved head linesman Steve Stelljes in the Super Bowl, who got booted out of joint practices with the Patriots because of a fight, who brawled with teammate Riley Cooper on Thursday, could become a problem for the Eagles if he doesn’t get his act together, Vick said.
“I know after yesterday, Cary understands that we need him on the football field, not to be hot-headed at times,” Vick said. “We know he’s a guy who’s very into his work and what we do, and he can’t be high-strung all the time.
“He’s got to stay even-keel like everybody else, just out of respect for the game more than anything.”
