More off the field drama/issues for Mario Williams. The Buffalo Bills defensive end denied on Monday they he ever contemplated suicide and says private comments he made in text messages are taken out of context. As part of that lawsuit, his ex-fiancée released text messages in which Williams discusses taking prescription painkillers and having thoughts of suicide.
When asked about the controversy, Williams says that when he mentioned “suicidal thoughts” in a text message, he was “just venting.” Asked about the suicides of Junior Seau and Jovan Belcher, Williams was quick to answer, “Dude, I’m nowhere near that position.”
Another text has Williams revealing that he took three hydrocodones that morning, the day of Buffalo's game at New England. And he planned to take two more on the plane home. Hydrocodone is classified as a narcotic, and prescribed to relieve moderate to severe pain. Williams explained that any painkillers he took were prescribed by the team
Everyone has skeletons or dirty laundry that is meant to be private. I can't comment on how Williams is feeling or what state of mind he is currently in. Maybe it’s the principle of the matter for him to get the ring back. Let hope for his sake their is resolution soon and that Williams is the right frame of mind by the time camp gets here in Rochester come July.
