williams downplays flap over his pads
SAN ANTONIO — Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams can’t even get his 4-year-old son to carry his shoulder pads.
“Man, I can’t get anybody to carry them,” the former Texas Longhorn joked Monday. “I’m mad at him, too.”
A day after the drama created when first-round pick Dez Bryant refused to carry the veteran’s pads off the field after practice, Williams said it was “not a big deal” and that the teammates were fine with each other. Dez Bryant ignored a rookie tradition when he refused to carry veteran Roy Williams’ pads after practice Sunday.
