New Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Cary Williams has failed to endear himself to the club's fan base because he's been absent from multiple voluntary team activities that were held over the past few weeks. Williams, who joined the Eagles this offseason after playing the past four years with the Baltimore Ravens, has missed OTAs for a variety of reasons, including his daughter's dance recital, dental work, construction on his house and his wedding. Williams joined "The Mike Missanelli Show" on 97.5 The Fanatic Philadelphia to address the absences. "Teams, organizations, the NFL itself hold players captive over the OTAs," he said. "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 dismissed the notion the Eagles may be upset with his comments. "I really don't care. I told them what the situation was and we had a communication and that's what it was," he said.
