Cary Williams walked his talk.
The fiery cornerback had an impressive debut with the Philadelphia Eagles after being in the spotlight for the wrong reasons throughout the summer.
Williams signed a three-year, $17 million contract, including $10.5 million guaranteed, with the Eagles in the offseason after starting every game the last two seasons for the defending Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens.
He didn't make a positive first impression in Philadelphia, but made up for it in his first game.
Williams had a sack, made a diving interception to give Robert Griffin III his first career two-pick game and later batted down a pass on a key third down in the Eagles' 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
