.... What? Why?
Following the Eagles 37-34 victory over the Washington Redskins, Williams took issue with head coach Chip Kelly's workload on the players. The defensive back said the training and practicing during the week is impacting the Eagles on Sundays. Birds 24/7's Tim McManus caught up with Williams following the game,
"A lot of guys had no legs. A lot of guys coming in here were in a dogfight before the game even started. We've got to start taking care of our guys throughout the week in order for us to be productive and have more energy on Sundays," said Williams.
"I think it negatively impacted a lot of people, and I'm not the only person. I'm just one that is man enough to stand up here and talk to y'all and address the issue that's obviously in my opinion an issue in our starts. But again, I'm just employee 26. Whatever they deem necessary for us to be ready on Sundays is whatever it is, if we've got to find energy from outside source or whatever it may be to start games quick, then we've got to do it. But right now the way we're doing it is not conducive to success."
The 29-year-old cornerback signed a three-year, $17 million deal with the Eagles in March 2013. His 2014 salary became guaranteed on the fifth day of the league year. If you're looking ahead to next year, the Eagles would have $1,666,667 million worth of dead money is Williams were to be cut in the off-season.
