The Eagles have made some terrific moves this offseason despite losing several key players. One of those moves was signing a 25-year-old cornerback that is looking for a reset. Greedy Williams met the Philly media today and right off the bat, you could see just how excited he was.
He was first asked to say how he ended up with the Eagles and his response was “a lot of prayer and a great fit… I wanted to be somewhere where guys compete and win. So it kind of fits me and who I am.”
That’s one thing that has been key to this Eagles’ culture. The players there are focused on one thing, winning. Which is why you see so many of them taking pay cuts just to stay with the Eagles.
Eagles are getting Greedy…
Greedy is the next guy on that list but the key component to him is his age. At 25 years old, Williams has seen the ups and downs of the NFL and was looking to bounce back at the right place.
When asked about how free agency went for him, Greedy stated, “It was up and down, but you know, the perfect call came in at the perfect time and now I am an Eagle.”
He was later asked about how he felt being around veteran corners like Darius Slay and James Bradberry, Williams mentioned, “it’s my first time being around veterans with years under their belt..” he continued to go on by saying, “they can definitely teach you a couple of things. It’s just about being pro. It doesn’t have to be about football. It’s just about being a pro and how to maintain in this league.”
With the Eagles moving on from CJGJ and seeing his recent outbursts. It looks like the Eagles are honing in on guys that can be professionals on and off the field. This adds to the winning culture that they are building in South Philly. A culture that could build a championship pedigree for years to come.
We saw how Jalen Hurts carried himself this season, is that now the standard?
Lastly was the question that has been on everyone’s mind. What will Sean Desai’s defense look like in Philadelphia and will it be an upgrade over Gannon’s defense?
Greedy was asked about his interaction with Desai and while holding in his excitement he stated, “oh we talked about a little ball. It was exciting. He’s a great guy. I’m ready to work with him.” He went on to add fuel to every Eagles fan’s heart by adding a key remark. He told the media, “you know, I’m excited man. And what he was saying, y’all should be looking forward to a great defense.”
With the Eagles continuing to rebuild their defense under the new DC Sean Desai. It will be interesting to see how many players like Greedy are brought in. We know they added Justin Evans who had a similar thought start to his career but my curiosity is at an all-time high thanks to Greedy Williams.
