Eagles cornerback Cary Williams has made it clear that he doesn’t that he missed a good portion of OTA’s to take care of some family business. “Teams, organizations, the NFL itself hold players captive over the OTAs,” Williams told Mike Missanelli, of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly, via ProFootballTalk.com.  “They say it’s not mandatory but it’s mandatory, you know what I’m saying?  If you want me to be there, if you want me to play football year round, you don’t want me to not have an offseason, you don’t want me to have a personal life let me know.” Williams doesn’t care what the Eagles think. “I really don’t care,” he said.  “I told them what the situation was and we had a communication and that’s what it was.” Williams ripped those who believe he should report to OTA’s because of how much money he makes. “What kills me is people talk about how much money I make,” Williams said.  “Like that’s still gonna take away from me wanting to be a great dad and a good family man.  I have no off days during the season.  I hope y’all understand that; there’s no off days.  I can’t come to work and say, ‘Oh, my head hurts.  I can’t make it today.’   Because my job requires much more than that.” I believe Williams has a valid point about OTA’s being voluntary but teams still expecting everyone to show up.  The problem is that if he doesn’t perform on the field during the season, the Eagles may not hesitate to dump him and another team thinking about signing him might question his dedication.   Need NFL Tickets?
