Mario Williams: 'I'm too strong for ridicule and childish extremes'

By Tim Graham

Mario Williams isn't much of a tweeter, but the Buffalo Bills edge-rusher posted messages tonight seemingly in response to the allegations set forth in a Houston Chronicle article.

The Chronicle reported the attorney representing Williams' ex-fiancee had released texts in which Williams mentions suicidal thoughts and taking narcotics without anyone's knowledge.

After tweeting once between July 23 and tonight, Williams posted several messages (through TwitLonger) from his verified account:

"The true character of someone is always revealed in times that we don't typically agree with. In these times it's how you respond and portray yourself to others that shows the ethics, character and true morals of a person. What's shown speaks for itself!

"I'm still here and always will be. I'm too strong for ridicule and the childish extremes those will do to try and taint a persons name when in reality you make me stronger, hungrier and more determined.

"I'm thankful to be so blessed that nothing said shall ever contest. I cherish what's been given to me, I cherish life and The Lord that allows me to breathe every breath. Most of all I'm thankful he showed me this is the season for revealing ones true character. Revealing the true person!"
