RENTON, Wash. — In an exclusive interview, new Seahawks cornerback Cary Williams talks about being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles, how he’s been unfairly portrayed as a jerk by some in the media and how he feels about being in Seattle.
The 30-year-old Williams was cut by the Eagles on March 3 after two seasons there. Afterward, he criticized the conditioning program, with at least one media outlet saying he was “taking a shot” at Philly coach Chip Kelly.
On March 10, Williams was signed by the Seahawks.
In the interview with Q13 FOX, Williams said he was “shocked” initially when he was cut by the Eagles “and then it made me angry.”
But he believes his release was “a blessing in disguise. I’m glad to be part of a great organization, a great team, with great players…”
With Seahawks training camp set to open on July 31, Q13 FOX is getting you ready for the season with exclusive one-on-one interviews with key players and coaches, old and new.
