Dallas Cowboy WR Roy Williams has been catching 200 balls a week off the JUGS machine and an estimated 40 or 50 from QB Tony Romo. He is ready to prove that he is the same receiver he was in Detroit in 2006, when he caught 82 passes for 1,310 yards and seven touchdowns.
Williams said he isn't going to give up his starting job easily, even though the Cowboys spent a first-round pick on Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant.
"This ain't my first rodeo," Williams said. "I got recruited [to Texas] with B.J. [Johnson] and Sloan Thomas, so those are two top-notch guys. I came in and did my thing. I was the third one on the totem pole in that deal, and I came out No. 1. I don't really see it as a competition thing. I see it as us getting better.
"But I know in the back of my mind and the back of his mind, he wants to play, the only way he's going to play is to get No. 11 off the field, and that's going to be tough to do. But it's going to make us better as a football team."
This battle will impact your draft when it comes to WR depth, and is just something else to watch this summer. Williams may have the value early on this season, but at this point it's hard not to think Bryant will take over the WR2 job on Dallas by the end of the season.
