Nothing worse for a football player than playing in the wrong scheme. Cowboys safety Roy Williams says he was a better player in the 4-3 defense.
The team currently runs a 3-4 scheme. He missed most of the 2008 season with a arm injury he says has healed. He missed 13 games.
"I'm not playing in the position I played in my first three years when Mike Zimmer (former defensive coordinator) was here and ran the 4-3 OK? I got used in the defense. I don't make excuses."
Williams knows there is talk he may not be with the Cowboys in 2009 because of his high salary. The soon to be 29-year old may not have helped his chances when he said admitted he missed the old defense, "Yes, I'm better in a 4-3 scheme than a 3-4 because it's gap sound."
