The Dallas Cowboys’ secretive, players-only workouts have been on hiatus for several weeks now, but according to most of the team that attended, the sessions were highly productive. Dez Bryant said recently that he felt the workouts did a great deal to help him personally, and the team as a whole; Roy Williams echoed these sentiments recently.
"They did a great job of running the thing for the betterment of our team," Williams said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think the veteran guys understand what's going on the field because we've been there before. But when we come back [from the lockout], we'll be ready to work."
According to reports on Monday, many around the league believe a deal will be done in time to be voted on at the July 21 owners meetings in Atlanta--meaning that, if everything falls into place, the lockout could end in around ten days. Williams is optimistic that the team will be ready to go, whenever the lockout comes to an end.
"Yeah, it really needs to happen sooner or later," Williams said. "We just have to wait and see what happens. There will be football, no doubt about that. We just have to be ready to go."
