Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is happy that the New England Patriots will have to play the first four games of the season without star quarterback Tom Brady, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
“I am glad they got problems. I don't care,” Williams said Tuesday. “Everybody has their problems, and I am glad they have theirs.”
Brady will serve the four-game suspension as punishment for his role in the Deflategate scandal. The Patriots will turn to Jimmy Garappolo to start the season at quarterback.
Williams, however, does not think the Brady suspension makes a difference to his team.
“I don't know why everybody thinks that affects us,” Williams said. “We don't care. You think Big Ben wants to beat a Brady-less team? That proves nothing to him.”
A 10-year NFL veteran, Williams played his first season with the Steelers last season, rushing for 907 yards and 11 touchdowns.
