DeAngelo Williams won’t play for the Cowboys, Browns, Panthers or Jaguars

Can’t lie, I’m a DeAngelo Williams guy. I’ve been a Carolina Panthers fan since day-one and he was a major contributor to our franchise for many years. So, I’m interested in where he goes and hope the best for him. It was pretty shitty how the Panthers handled his situation. I don’t blame him for not wanting to come back.

It also appears that he’s going to put professional wrestling on hold for the time being. I’m not saying that almost broke his neck has anything to do with it. But, I’m not saying it’s not either.

But, there are four teams that DeAngelo Williams won’t play for.

  • The Jaguars:  Because he wants to go to a team “where winning is something that’s expected, not something that people get excited about.” He added, “I can’t think of anything positive about that organization outside of the fact that they have pools in the stadium.”
  • The Browns: “[The Browns] don’t have a history of winning,” he said. “I’m not sure about all of the championships they won before the Super Bowl was the Super Bowl, but in my lifetime, I haven’t seen them have a winning season.”
  • The Cowboys: “The Cowboys, they win. They just don’t ever show up during the playoffs. They always disappear in the playoffs. I’ve got a great depiction of the Cowboys’ fan base.” He added, “I’m an ’80s baby … and the 49ers ruled the ’80s. The Cowboys somewhat did something in the ’90s; I even refuse to give them that.”
  • The Panthers: “I had no problems with getting fired, but there are things that went on there that I didn’t like — and I still don’t like to this day,” he told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “… There’s no point in me going back there. You’re an ex for a reason, right? You don’t go back to exes, and that’s just where I’m at there.”

I don’t know if the Pittsburgh Steelers want him. But, it seems like he’s totally open to going back there.

ESPN: “Free-agent running back DeAngelo Williams is still “waiting on the phone call” to join a team for the 2017 season, but there are four teams that he’d rather not hear from.

Williams, who scored 17 touchdowns as Le’Veon Bell’s backup for two seasons in Pittsburgh, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter in his Know Them From Adam podcast that he’d rather not play for the Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars or Dallas Cowboys.

While his reasons for not wanting to play for the Browns and Jaguars were business-related, they were purely personal regarding the Panthers and Cowboys.”
