Aaron Dobson, Cary Williams got in scrap


New England Patriots second-round wide receiver Aaron Dobson showed off the ball skills that made him a highlight-reel player at Marshall, as he made several circus catches that would make even Brandon Lloyd envious. Dobson, however, was also benched during the joint practice between the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles, as he got into a scrap with the Eagles new fiery cornerback, Cary Williams, who is formerly of the Baltimore Ravens.

Dobson was blocking on a running play, and apparently Cary Williams wasn’t happy with something Dobson was doing. He put his hands up near Dobson’s helmet and both players got into some minor shoving before some other players got involved. The scuffle was very minor and was stopped soon, with both Bill Belichick and Chip Kelly benching their respective players.

Kelly stated that neither side didn’t want a “wrestling match” instead of a productive practice, and both players were benched for the remainder of the day. It was the best way for both sides to handle things, and I have absolutely no concerns about Dobson character-wise. It didn’t even seem like Dobson started anything, and this was a minor scrum on both sides, so I’m not going to say anything ill of Williams either; this stuff happens in football.
