DeAngelo Williams Won't Play For The Cowboys Because Their Fans Are 'Super Annoying'

There are four teams DeAngelo Williams won't play for—and the Cowboys are one of them.

After two seasons in Pittsburgh backing up Le'Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams is a free agent and looking for a new team. He told ESPN that he's open to playing for any team—except four: The Browns, Jaguars, Panthers and Cowboys.

But why those teams?

Well, Williams won't sign with the Browns or Jaguars because they're terrible, basically. And he won't sign with the Panthers because of how they handled his release. Understandable.

The Cowboys however, are a different story. It has nothing to do with the organization, and everything to do with their rabid fanbase—which he despises. It's also worth noting his childhood team was the 49ers.


“My fandom for the team I was raised as will not allow me to go to the Cowboys,” Williams told Schefter. “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 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. During the regular season last year, they were on cloud nine. You couldn’t tell them anything because they were going to win the ‘ship — that’s all they said. Fans just got extremely super annoying. Then, the minute they lose, they either got cheated, somebody was hurt — the excuses start flowing. It’s just amazing to me. That fan base just in general can’t handle defeat. Still, to this day, they say that the Dez Bryant catch against the Green Bay Packers was a catch!”

Oof. Tell us how you really feel, DeAngelo. All we can hope for now is that he signs with a team that ends up playing the Cowboys in the regular season.
