Eagles Cut CB Cary Williams

Scott Boehmn/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Philadelphia Eagles cut cornerback Cary Williams on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old spent the past two seasons with the Eagles, playing in all 33 regular season and playoff games for the team.

Williams had one year left on the three-year contract he signed with the Eagles in 2013. By cutting Williams, Philadelphia clears $6.5 million in cap space.

There's a possibility the Eagles will be without three-quarters of last season's starting secondary: cornerback Bradley Fletcher and safety Nate Allen will become free agents on March 10.

Williams joined the Eagles after a 2012 season in which he won the Super Bowl as a member of the Baltimore Ravens. During his two seasons in Philadelphia, Williams had 139 tackles, 22 passes defended, five interceptions, and one sack.

Cary Williams Apologizes for Practice Comments

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Cary Williams apologized Tuesday to his teammates and coach regarding remarks he made after Sunday's game about how the team practices.

Williams blamed the Eagles sluggish starts in their first three contests on head coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo practices.

"When you're a pro for seven years and you make a mistake, you understand you affected the welfare of everybody in this locker room, and you have to address those guys man to man and let them know that you're sorry," Williams said. "That's what I did."

Williams and Kelly have since talked about the player's controversial comments.

"I'm not telling you guys anything that Chip said to me personally," Williams said to the media. "We just had a great conversation, guys. We have a little bit more of an understanding. We understand where each other stand. We're able to agree on some things. That was that."

Riley Cooper, Cary Williams Scuffle at Eagles Practice 

NFL via Getty Images (PHILADELPHIA) --  Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams got into a fight at practice on Thursday.

The fight "required several players" to separate Cooper and Williams.  It ended with quarterback Michael Vick holding back Williams as he continued to shout at Cooper.

The incident comes just five weeks after a video surfaced on the Internet of Cooper using an offensive racial insult.  Cooper was fined, apologized to his teammates and took a brief leave of absence to seek counseling.

"Any time there's something extra on the field with Riley and another teammate or an opponent, that's the first thing that's going to come up -- especially if the guy's black," Eagles running back LeSean MCcoy said.

Cooper said after practice that his scuffle with Williams was "nothing," just two competitive teammates fighting for the same football.

The Eagles open up their regular season on Monday night against the Washington Redskins.
