Eagles cornerback Cary Williams recently called the Patriots “cheaters” leading up to this week’s preseason game.
Williams ended up apologizing to Belichick when the future head coach approached him after Friday’s game.
“I told him that I was sorry,” Williams said. “I told him I respect him as a man, I respect him as a coach, I respect him as a GM. And I respect the organization. I told him I said something out of emotions, and I didn’t mean that. …You try to use anything to fire yourself up. I let my emotions get the best of me. I said some things I kind of regret.”
“Two guys with respect for one another,” Williams said. “I told him how I felt, and he knew it was from the heart.”
Next time, Williams needs to keep his mouth shut.
