Philadelphia Eagles: Cary Williams Signing Will End in Disaster
In Philadelphia, fan want their athletes to embrace their teams and their city. We want character and determination, hard work and persistence. Players like Brian Dawkins will be idolized forever for laying it all on the field every Sunday. Sometimes, new additions fall flat, and Cary Williams is rapidly moving in that direction.
It started with his refusal to attend some OTAs (organized team activities) for various reasons like working on his new home, attending his daughter’s recital, or getting dental work. He appeared in the media and stated that the fans just have to deal with it and that he would let his play speak for itself on Sundays. At that moment, he put a target on his back and set himself up to be closely scrutinized every game.
Now he can’t stay on the field. Williams left practice yesterday with a “nagging” hamstring injury. He is looking like a player who doesn’t think he needs to be out there with his teammates.
Yeah, he comes over with a Super Bowl ring, but there is a reason the Baltimore Ravens let him walk. He’s cashing a large paycheck to avoid training camp. It will be up to Chip Kelly to handle this issue, adding another problem to his pile of things to address during the inaugural Camp Kelly.
Williams needs to turn things around. He must show the effort and skill that contributed to the Ravens’ championship. He needs to understand how things work in Philadelphia, and that this is a different football town than our neighbors to the south.
The more important problem is that Billy Davis is installing a new system with a handful of new players. Williams needs time to gel with his unit, and the secondary is not looking like a strong point so far.
If Williams can turn things around, he will be a valuable contributor to the team. If not, he will go down as another wasted signing to add to the long list of poor moves by the Philadelphia Eagles front office.
