Former Ravens cornerback Cary Williams didn’t leave his disdain for the New England Patriots here in Baltimore when he drove up I-95 and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
While explaining to the Philadelphia Inquirer why he wasn’t thrilled with the Eagles’ upcoming joint practices with New England, Williams said Friday that the Patriots are “cheaters.”
“I give them all the credit in the world, but one fact remains: they haven’t won a Super Bowl since they got caught,” Williams said, in reference to the Patriots “Spygate” scandal in 2007.
Last year, Williams was thrown out of a joint practice against the Patriots after a fight with rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson. He told the Inquirer that he doesn’t think any joint practices are good.
So while the situation would probably draw his ire regardless of the opponent, Williams has animus stored up for the Patriots and one other team from his time in Baltimore.
"I feel the same way about the Pittsburgh Steelers," Williams said. "I don’t like them, either. That’s my upbringing. And now I’m starting not to like any team in this division.”
