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."

Eagles Jackson Has $250K, Gun Stolen

Rob Tringali/SportsChrome/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- DeSean Jackson, wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, had his South Philadelphia home robbed over the weekend. Police said more than $250,000 in cash and jewelry, as well as a handgun, were stolen from the residence.

Jackson was in Miami all week, leaving Philadelphia a few hours after cleaning out his locker from the Eagles practice facility following their playoff loss to New Orleans last week. The wide receiver tweeted on Saturday after discoviering the robbery.

A police spokeswoman says that no arrests have been made but the investigation is still on going. Earlier in the week, Jackson expressed his desire to renegotiate his current contract with the Eagles. The six-year veteran just finished the second season in a five-year deal. Jackson is scheduled to earn $10.5 million in 2014.
