Eagles Release Cary Williams
"Either way, it doesn't matter to me. If I'm back, awesome," said Cary Williams, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback, at the completion of his lackluster 2014 campaign.
Well, he won't be returning to the Eagles backfield as Philadelphia announced the release of the veteran corner this Tuesday.
In two seasons with Philadelphia, Williams had just five interceptions while playing catch-up with the majority of wideouts he faced.
Williams' partner in crime, Bradley Fletcher, will likely join him in the unemployment line as a free agent unlikely to be resigned.
Williams and Fletcher were brought in at the beginning of the Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia. During the 2014 season, they succeeded in having the second worst pass defense in the NFL while giving up a total of thirty receiving touchdowns, tied for fourth worst in the league.
The Eagles finished 10-6 despite the secondary struggles, however, with a unit that compares to the likes of Chicago (5-11), Washington (4-12) and Atlanta (6-10), a change needed to be made.
Williams has a Super Bowl ring from his years with the Ravens but it looks like adding one while playing in an Eagles uniform will be on hold for now.
