A quick thought on Cary Williams’ absence from Eagles OTAs

In April of 2012, Cary Williams’ teammate with the Ravens, CB Lardarius Webb, signed a 5 year contract extension worth $50 million. Later that offseason in August, Williams reportedly turned down a 3 year deal worth $15 million, despite having only one year under his belt as a starter. That seems like a pretty good deal that Williams passed on, opting instead to play under his restricted free agent tag for $1.927 million in 2012.

During the 2012 season, Williams started off poorly, but he played well down the stretch, helping the Ravens win the Super Bowl, while Webb missed most of the season with a torn ACL. Williams was looking to cash in on free agency, and he landed with the Eagles on a 3 year deal worth $17 million. While that may seem like great money to you and me, it is just $2 million more than the money he turned down before the start of the 2012 season, which at the time was a massive gamble. Williams clearly thought he was worth more than that $15 million offer he rejected.

Yesterday, Tim McManus of Philly Mag listed the comical reasons Cary Williams has been missing various Eagles OTA practices:

Cary Williams was once again a no-show. The corner missed about a month of work as he took care of some personal business, which included getting married, having dental work done and tending to a house-build. The latest reason? His daughter’s recital.

Obviously, those are some pretty bad reasons for a professional football player to be missing practice, voluntary or not, especially for a player who just signed a deal that makes him tied for the 8th highest paid Eagle in terms of “average money per year.”

Crazy as it might sound considering he likely signed with the team who offered the most money, I wonder if Williams is sulking because he thinks that he’s worth more than what the market said he was worth during free agency. Whatever the case, Williams’ career with the Eagles is not off to a good start.

    1. Jimmer says:

      Agree. Bryce Brown can start at CB, he is Superman crossed with Bo Jackson after all. Or maybe Lane Johnson, his combine numbers were off the charts, heck he was flanked out at WR in practice yesterday.

  18. Dan in Philly says:

    We also don’t know how much chip makes.about missing these. maybe he’s cool with a veteran like him missing some of this time?

    1. TJ says:

      Highly doubt he’s “cool” with anyone missing a chance to learn a new defense.

    The Super Bowl champ ravens visit the white house June 5th, dead in the middle of our Mandatory 3 day camp…as we all know, these white house visits are sort of a right of passage for Super Bowl winners…I really hope Cary has the sense to not try and miss a mandatory camp to go play around with Obama, because the situation can quickly go from not that big of a deal to BAD!

    I would be interested to find out what his attendance was like last year at OTAs. The situations are a bit different since he would have been a RFA, but it still would be interesting to see if he worked differently last year in his contract year or not.

      Williams was injured during the Ravens OTA from last season, but he was present during all of them. He worked out on the sideline and most likly learned the defense better. Here is a great article.. Check it out

      1. Taylor says:

        “The fifth-year cornerback is expected to be 100 percent by the time training camp begins in late July. He has been working on conditioning on the side field during OTAs.

        “I’ll be out there doing individual drills, running around, doing a lot more cutting, doing a lot more jumping around, catching the balls,” said Williams about his goals for mandatory minicamp. “I might even do one-on-one’s; it just depends on how well it goes. I see the doctor on Friday, so hopefully we’ll come back with some good news.””

  21. Bob says:

    Might have something to do with the Ravens culture. I remember last year when everyone was going nuts because Mike Jenkins was missing OTAs, loads of ravens were missing OTAs; 19 in the final one.

    someone at igglesblitz posted an interesting thought:
    the superbowl champs will visit the president during the time of the eagles *mandatory* OTAs.
    think he will be there or not? ; )

    1. Ha, didn’t know that.

      I think that raises an interesting decision for the Eagles. If Williams had been a model pro during his first couple months with the team, that’s probably something they’d excuse. But now…

    2. ggeagle21 says:

      Yeah, I posted that….I rally hope this kid has the sense to not even ask to be excused from the mandatory camp…like Jimmy said, had he put in the work, Chip could consider it, but I really really hope Cary has enough sense to not even bring this up
