Eagles' Cary Williams on claims Patriots are cheaters: 'I stand firm'
The Eagles and Patriots will hold joint practices next week before their preseason matchup. Last Friday, Philadelphia cornerback Cary Williams called the Patriots "cheaters," saying "you don’t want to give them an opportunity to look at your stuff."
Williams stood by his comments, which reference the Spygate scandal, on Tuesday.
"Did I say the wrong thing? No." Williams said, via the News Journal. "I stand firm on what my beliefs are, and that's just that. I didn't tell a lie. At the end of the day, that did happen. It's in the history books. As far as I'm concerned, I made a comment about it and that's that."
When the Patriots and Eagles practiced together last summer, Williams was kicked off the field after "scuffling" with a Patriots player, according to CSN Philly.
Williams is in his second season with the Eagles. He signed a three-year, $17 million contract after winning Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens as a starting corner.
