RB DeAngelo Williams takes dig at Tom Brady, Patriots on Adam Schefter's podcast

Free agent running back DeAngelo Williams went on Adam Schefter's Know Them From Adam podcast and named four teams he'd rather not play for -- the Browns, Panthers, Jaguars and Cowboys.

Williams, who most recently played for the Steelers, was asked his thoughts on the Patriots as they were not on his list. While he did praise the organization, he took a few shots as well by saying they play in a weak division and Tom Brady is a system quarterback.

"It’s kind of one of those things, man," Williams said. "It wasn’t the Patriots because it wasn’t a lot of hatred there. I was speaking, and will continue to speak, on the side of being right. You look at all the championship rings that they have. You can’t deny the fact that they win. Whether it is them being in a weak division, whether it’s Tom Brady being an exceptional quarterback, whether it’s him being a system quarterback. Whatever the fact is, they continue to win and they win on a consistent basis.”

This isn't the first time Williams has taken a dig at the Patriots. Last summer he said Patriots fans cheer for a team of "certified cheaters."

Williams, 34, played for the Panthers from 2006-14 and Steelers the last two seasons.
