When the Patriots left town over the weekend, CB Cary Williams offered insight about why he started a fight with Patriots rookie Aaron Dobson.
“They came in here talking. They had a lot of jokes and … laughs, and a lot of dirty plays that were going on,” Williams said, according to Philly.com. “There was a reason behind [why I got in a fight], a reason behind the madness.”
Williams explained what some of those “dirty plays” were on NFL.com
“Those guys I play with, whether they be on offense or defense or special teams, those are my brothers,” Williams said. “Every time I strap up, that’s my family.

Me just relaxing and being cool and letting those people do what they do to me and me being a doormat is something I’m not used to.”
Several reporters noted that the fight came at the beginning of 11-on-11 drills, meaning there had been no opportunity for the Patriots to illegally or dangerously block any Eagles before the fight.
Williams had a tough time explaining the kind of trash talking the Patriots were doing.
“It was just saying, their D linemen talking, a few of them talking about, you know. And then you had a couple of DBs saying trash, talking like you know,” Williams said. “They came into our facilities and they were doing some dirty things. They were doing some good things too. But my mind was on the dirty stuff.”
I really have no idea what he was trying to say there.
Cary Williams is an out spoken corner with a short fuse, the fight really doesn’t come at much surprise.
Patriots coach Belichick was asked about the comments made by Williams.
“We’ve moved on,” he said. “I mean, we’re coming up on Tampa [Friday’s opponent].
