After being informed of his release by Jerry Jones in 2009, Jones asked Williams if there was anything he could do for him.
"I want to retire as a Cowboy," Williams said, per ESPNDallas.com.
Jones said that he would oblige Williams’ request with a one-day contract, when the veteran safety decides to call it a career. In the past, Larry Allen and Emmitt Smith have signed similar contracts, after post-Dallas stints with San Francisco and Arizona, respectively.
Williams is entering his ninth season in the league, his second with the Bengals.
