    Dallas Cowboys' receiver Roy Williams welcomes first round selection of Dez Bryant, welcomes the competition that he will inevitably provide at the position, as he believes he will make the team better as a whole.

    But he's not ready to fork over his starting position just yet and, actually, he doesn't even see the situation as a competition.

    "I don't see it as a competition thing," Williams said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I see it as us getting better. I know in the back of my mind and the back of his mind he wants to play and the only way he's going to play is to get No. 11 off the field. It's going to be tough to do, but it's going to make us better as a football team."

    Williams maintains the Bryant will have a fight on his hands if he wishes to start in his first year in the league, which--regardless of the reader's feelings about Roy--will be a good thing for the team. Williams understands this but, as he further attempts to develop a rapport with quarterback Tony Romo, still sees coming off the bench as almost inconceivable.

    "Like I said when I first got here, ain't no such thing as me sitting on the bench," Williams said. "Never in my life."
