DeAngelo Williams on Cowboys: “They Don’t Ever Show Up During The Playoffs. They Always Disappear”
Don’t let his recent wrestling stint confuse you. DeAngelo Williams definitely wants to play football this season.
The free agent running back recently stated that he is looking to continue his career, but he has standards and there are four teams he won’t sign with.
He revealed that list to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on his “Know Them From Adam” podcast on Wednesday.
“First team would be the Cleveland Browns, mainly because they don’t have a history of winning. I don’t think they’ve ever had a winning season (during my career) and the closest thing they’ve ever got to a winning season is 8-8, in my lifetime,” Williams said.
His second team was surprising as he spent the first nine years of his career with them.
“The Carolina Panthers would be team No. 2,” he said. “And the reason being is because of the way they handled my exit. I had no problem with getting fired, but (there were) things that went on there that I didn’t like, and I still don’t like to this day, however they have rectified the situation in terms of other players.”
“You don’t go back to exes, and that’s just where I’m at there,” Williams added.
The fourth team was the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have only had 3 winning seasons since 2000.
“My fondest memory of the Jacksonville Jaguars is Fred Taylor. He in my opinion is a future Hall of Famer, but I can’t think of anything else positive about that particular organization outside of the fact that they have pools in the stadium,” Williams said.
His last team is no surprise as he grew up a fan of the San Francisco 49ers.
“I grew up and was raised as a (San Francisco) 49ers fan, so this fourth team, you should be able to guess it,” he began. “My fandom for the team I was raised as (a fan of) would not allow me to go to the (Dallas) Cowboys.”
“They don’t ever show up during the playoffs. They always disappear in the playoffs.”
To be fair, none of these teams were probably interested in signing him, so the feelings may have already been mutual.
