Riley Cooper and Cary Williams Fight At Eagles’ Practice [Video]
Rucuss staffSeptember 6, 2013
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams got into a scuffle during Thursday’s practice.
It’s common for players to get into fights during training camp and practice. But the reason this particular fight is newsworthy is because it involves Cooper, who was caught on video saying racist remarks a few months ago.
After the two participated in a drill on Thursday, things got a little heated between them. Williams had to be ‘pulled away’ and restrained from going after Cooper.
Michael Vick was one of the players who stepped in to separate the two. Cooper reportedly looked visibly distraught after the disagreement and opted to stay out of drills involving receivers and defensive backs until DeSean Jackson came over and talked to him. Jackson also had a conversation with Williams after the incident.
Cooper insisted that he and Williams had smoothed things over by the time practice ended, but Vick was not happy with his teammates.
“I try to be the peacemaker, but these young dudes don’t respect me,” Vick told the Philadelphia Daily News, motioning in the direction of Williams. “Our maturity level’s gotta be on a whole different plane. Regardless of who the catalyst was for the whole fight, that doesn’t matter. We’ve gotta be men. We’re not guys who are out on the street, fighting one another. We’re teammates … It’s game week. We don’t have time for that. I don’t. It’s a distraction.”
