Concerns over professional athletes’ mental health have become a high-profile issue in the NFL. Former star linebacker Junior Seau committed suicide a year ago. Last season, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend before killing himself.

“Dude,” Williams said, when Seau and Belcher were brought up, “I’m nowhere near that position.”

He then put the onus on Marzouki. If she was so concerned about his state of mind, Williams questioned why she brought these texts to light now, and not then?

Williams doesn’t regret filing the lawsuit, and said he’s not affected by the accusations.

“In my situation, dude, my skin is unbreakable,” Williams said, before pointing to the football field. “This is all that matters to me. And that logo. So everything else about old stuff and this and that, it sounds good, but that’s the least of my worries.”
